Roses. No other flower can be a shrub, tree, or vine and give you as many choices of colors and fragrances as a rose. Wouldn’t it be nice to grow your own roses and have them thrive? And to do it sustainably without artificial fertilizers and pesticides? You can! In this class, learn how to create the best conditions for your roses to thrive, from healthy soil to companion planting.
Katie Rivera, a recent Permaculture Design Certificate recipient and part of the team who designed the Rio Vista Veterans Residence demonstration food forest garden, will talk about how to grow beautiful roses with just a bit of know-how. Katie will talk about her research and design process for a rose garden proposed for the Rio Vista Veterans Residence. Join her for interesting facts about growing disease resistant, low maintenance roses and specific ideas and suggestions from the Veterans Memorial Rose Garden design.
