The Rose Garden at Leif Erikson Park needs to be protected as the cold air starts to come and the leaves change.

It's a big job and again this year they need your help. This is a great way to learn the art of Rose Tipping, Minnesota Method.

The public is invited to join Duluth Parks staff and the Lake Superior Rose Society in the annual tipping of the roses at the Leif Erikson Park - Rose Garden. There are two dates, Thursday, October 25, 2018 from 3:00 PM-6:00PM and Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 9:00AM-12:00PM.

Whether you are experienced at the task or just want to learn, expert rose tippers will be on hand to teach volunteers the Minnesota Tip Method, a process that protects tender roses from the harsh conditions of a typical Duluth winter.

The Rose tipping method will be taught to everyone, if you want to bring the whole family, you don't have to have experience, just be willing to help. This is a great night for groups (like girl scouts, boy scouts, and church groups).

If you are interested in participating, please check in with the link below, then show up at the Rose Garden, located between 12th and 13th Avenue East and London Road, on the day of the event. Check-in with Duluth Parks staff. Free parking is available in the lot between Valentinis and the Rose Garden. Dress for the weather. All tools and supplies will be provided, including work gloves.
