Meetings and Events


Albuquerque Rose Society Meetings are held September through November and February through May at 7 p.m. at the Albuquerque Garden Center (see map below). Each meeting includes a special rose-related program with topics ranging from how to landscape with roses to learning about the hidden stories behind our favorite rose names. A brief business meeting is held afterward.

We do not meet in June, July, and August to allow us to tend our own roses and the roses at the public garden. Regular meetings resume in September, October and November. Our December meeting is our Annual Holiday Party held at a local restaurant.

Tuesday nights, All Summer,  6:30 p.m.

Deadheading in the Rose Garden, Tony Hillerman Library begins weekly in June and continues throughout the summer. Please help us deadhead our roses…bring your gloves and clippers, and look for the folks in the blue or green T-shirts. All are welcome, members and non-members. If you aren’t sure what to do, bring your clippers and we will show you!
