Rose Garden Tall Ships Festival

It's hard to believe in just months, we'll strolling through the beautiful Rose Garden in the City of Duluth near Lake Superior, without a jacket on, because as I write this blog, we are under a Winter Storm Warning, but it's true.  Of course, to reap the benefits of the garden's beauty, the hard work has to start now and you're help is needed.

It happens annually in Duluth the “raising of the roses” in the popular Lakewalk Rose Garden.  Want to get in on the fun?  Volunteers are invited to join in on this annual spring tradition and there are two upcoming opportunities to do so.

Clear your calendar, the Rose Garden work days are slated for Saturday, April 27th from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon and Tuesday, April 30th 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

Even beginners are welcome because City staff and representatives from the Lake Superior Rose Society will be on hand to teach the volunteers the spring steps of the Minnesota tip winterizing method for tender roses.  Gain knowledge while you're helping with one of the most visited areas of Duluth by locals and tourists!

Volunteers are encouraged to bring gloves and remember to dress for the weather.

Register your participation by emailing cskafte@duluthmn.gov or calling 218-730-4334.
