Pruning of Community
Rose Gardens

   The FVRS has maintained and cared for the Esther Short Park and Covington House rose gardens for many years.  This work helps us to meet part of our mission by educating the public about roses and also by sharing our love of roses with the community.  In the spring, the work includes pruning canes and removing winter-applied protective mulch from the plants and spreading that mulch throughout the garden to keep soil moist and discourage weeds.
  The FVRS has accomplished this in many ways--members have signed up to keep the gardens for a two-week period, volunteers were asked to watch the garden (and we hope it gets done!), or one or two members just make it happen.
   FVRS did spring pruning to "open up" both the Esther Short Park and the Covington House rose gardens on March 10 and 13, respectively.  The public was invited to arrive with pruners, rakes, wheelbarrow, etc., and learn how to get their rose gardens ready for summer!

Recently, we were featured in the In Your Neighborhood section of The Columbian:  http://www.columbian.com/news/2018/mar/28/fort-vancouver-rose-society-cleans-up-esther-short-park-garden/.
