In Our Garden
The Morcom Rose Garden is a rare 7+ acre green oasis located on Jean Street, one block off Grand Avenue in Oakland, CA. This jewel of a public garden is a 30’s era formal rose garden surrounded by winding paths, graceful stairways, dramatic water features, and enough natural habitat to attract and provide a sanctuary for a variety of birds, including hawks, as well as the neighbors who walk through it regularly. Accredited by the American Rose Society, the Morcom Rose Garden is an asset for all of Oakland.
This Wednesday, February 8th during our usual Volunteer Day at 11:00 AM there will be a class on late rose pruning, touch up and finger pruning. The class will begin at the south end of the Florentine, closest to the Mothers Walk. We hope to see you there!
