The Woodland Library Rose Club’s 24th annual Rose Garden Tour features a look at seven beautifully landscaped private gardens as well as the extensive rose collection on the grounds of the Woodland Public Library.
This Rose Club fundraiser will take place Sunday, April 26, from noon to 5 p.m. The gardens are all within the Woodland area; five are within the city limits and two are in Wild Wings, west of Woodland.
Festivities at the library’s Rose Garden feature docent-led tours of the largest public rose collection in Woodland. Musicians and tastings of local wines and Yolo County produce will be staged throughout the gardens.
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, 250 First St.
The club presents regular public seminars on rose care and gardening topics, as well as an annual Valentine’s Tea, the Rose Garden Tour and other educational and fundraising events.
