Piano Recital Benefit, September 17, 2017

Thank you for an inspiring concert Vicki! And thanks to all the Deadheaders, friends, and community people who attended the event at Plymouth Church and the reception in the Florentine. The concert donations raised almost $1700 to assist in our work of adding signage to the garden, buying compost tea to take care of the roses, and providing tools for volunteers. Your support of Morcom Rose Garden is greatly appreciated.

OAKLAND — Given its visual appeal and quiet outdoor setting, Oakland’s Morcom Rose Garden offers much for tourists and locals alike.

A great place for a Sunday stroll or a morning jog, this picturesque and colorful place — an urban oasis and home to many varieties of roses — provides a soothing atmosphere. And it’s not just the plants, as visitors can enjoy waterworks and a pond, and sometimes other visitors, such as a wild turkey.

During his lifetime, Peter Wyeth Hurd took many a walk through the garden with his wife, Victoria. A musician by profession, Hurd — a nephew of famed artist Andrew Wyeth — found both inspiration and respite in Morcom, located close to where he lived.
