Everything's Coming Up Roses in FB

So that I don't get charged with Obama-style plagarism, I will declare up front that this information is lifted verbatim from the City of Farmers Branch website. I hope everyone can participate!

It may be the dead of winter, but that’s prime time for planting roses in the new National EarthKind Trial Garden and Display Garden which has been under construction at Gussie Field Watterworth Park, at Valley View and Dennis Lanes, near Farmers Branch City Hall. Now that the ground has been prepared, the community is invited to come out and help plant the roses on Friday, February 22nd between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Parks Landscape Manager Pam Smith is asking anyone interested to let them know you’re coming by calling 972-919-2620. She said if everyone will bring their workgloves, the City will provide tools and – more importantly – lunch. Ms. Smith said more than 700 roses will be planted for the garden that will test for the environmentally-friendly EarthKind roses and display known performers that will include the past five years of All American Rose selections.

Beyond planting day, there are many volunteer opportunities for both a one-time or ongoing basis. For more information on the event or the gardens, please call Pam Smith at 972-919-2620.
