Learn how to select, plant roses at ‘Work to Learn’ party

The Sequim Botanical Garden Society invites the community to its “Work to Learn” party presentation on “Selecting Rose Plants” with Donni Hatlestad, set for 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Terrace Garden at Carrie Blake Community Park.

Hatlestad, a former Master Gardener and software development manager, is an officer with the society and a volunteer gardener. She will will give advice on roses for the Sequim climate, and what to look for when selecting roses for purchase, planting and growing.

She has developed a 5-acre garden on her Agnew property, and previously developed and maintained an acre garden in Redmond.

Participants are encouraged to learn how to contribute to the future Sequim Botanical Garden Society Rose Garden construction. After the presentation, they are encouraged to work alongside the garden society members maintaining the garden. Those who don’t have time to help in the process are welcome to come to the garden to observe the activity and see the Terrace Garden in bloom.

To get to the Terrace Garden, look for yellow signs and find the parking near the water reclamation site on North Blake Avenue, just north of the park near the James Center Band Shell, 350 N. Blake Ave.

The “Work to Learn” Parties are an opportunity for novice and seasoned gardeners to volunteer together.

The Sequim Botanical Garden Society is a volunteer partner with the City of Sequim and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides educational information and a visual demonstration of what can be done in home gardening with research-based horticultural practices.
