No this is not going to be a program about finding faith, it's the annual "Raise The Roses" program to get the rose garden overlooking the lake ready to be full and beautiful again. The City Of Duluth are looking for volunteers and again it's a chance to learn.

The City of Duluth’s Parks Maintenance staff are preparing for the annual “raising of the roses” in the popular Duluth Rose Garden on London Road and 13th Ave East.  City staff and representatives from the Lake Superior Rose Society will be on hand to teach volunteers the spring steps of the "Minnesota Tip" method for tender roses.  So, if you want to learn a few things to cultivate your own rose garden at home this is a great way to talk to the experts.
Volunteers are invited to join in on this annual spring tradition at any of these upcoming Rose Garden work days:

Tuesday, April 18 from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Saturday, April 22 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

** All dates and times are subject to change and are weather dependent. **
Individuals, families and all others interested in helping at the Rose Garden are encouraged to show up during the times listed above. Pre-registration is encouraged but not required. Volunteers are asked to bring work gloves (if possible) and to dress for the weather. Volunteers should look for City staff who will provide directions on how to "dig-in."
For updates on the event or to register your attendance, please email  or call 218-730-4334.
