The Woodland Library Rose Club was founded in 1989 by a group of rose enthusiasts with a mission to help people learn about growing roses. An American Rose Society affiliate, the club consists of rosarians, Master Gardeners and neighborhood gardening enthusiasts who care for and preserve more than 600 varieties of roses on the grounds of the Woodland Public Library.
The club presents regular public seminars on rose care and gardening topics, as well as an annual Valentine’s Tea, a Woodland home garden tour, and other educational and fundraising events. For more information, visit www.cityofwoodland.org/wlrc.
