City of Longmont's Memorial Rose Garden located at the west end of Roosevelt Park. The Memorial Rose Garden Volunteer Program is an effort to enlist community support through assistance with garden upkeep. Volunteers can enhance plant and overall garden bed appearance and improve plant health. Community pride, a sense of ownership, and a better maintained Rose Garden are the results of this program.
Any individual, group or organization can adopt a designated portion of the Memorial Rose Garden and can volunteer during a portion of or all of the season between April and September.
Examples of volunteer activities include some or all of the following:
The minimum time commitment volunteers is usually one growing season, but volunteers are welcome to continue on for as many seasons as they would like. In a season, volunteers typically make monthly visits between April and September, but the exact seasonal work period will depend on plant development and weather variations in a specific growing season.
