Heritage Rose Garden Workdays

The Rose Garden is a collection of more than 3,600 antique and modern roses. Established in 1995 through an extensive community effort, the garden contains more varieties than any other public rose garden in the western hemisphere. While the City of San Jose supplies materials, it is maintained primarily by volunteers. Projects will vary with the time of the year. Volunteers can learn how to maintain their own roses or just enjoy helping with the maintenance of this special rose garden.
