The Jacksonville Rose Society is a non-profit organization, established in 1954. Located in Jacksonville, Florida, we are an affiliate of The American Rose Society
As stated in our charter, the purpose of our organization is to encourage the scientific study of plants and their culture, specifically roses, both old and modern, and to encourage the planting of roses for civic beautification.
October Program “Enjoying Your Fall Roses” by Marcia Moore
Our speaker for the October meeting is Garden Club of Jacksonville member, Marcia Moore. She will present an interactive program about using plant materials, including roses, to create dried or pressed flower projects/crafts. She will have some of her local- and state-awarded projects to share as well as 2 or 3 flower presses available for sale. Marcia will share techniques that are beautiful and low cost. Anyone who is interested in scrapbooking, crafts, or is drawn to the artistic side will thoroughly enjoy hearing her. She grows roses and has successfully used them in her projects.
This is an opportunity for rose growers to expand their hobby and have a use for their fall blooms. Come see what it’s all about.
