Julia Davis Rose Garden seeks volunteers

Since 1935, the Julia Davis Park Rose Garden has attracted gardeners of varying expertise who share something in common – a passion for roses.

The Rose Garden has always been a labor of love for the people of Boise, and you can help us keep the tradition alive by volunteering one morning each week through the summer. Garden care includes tasks such as weeding, trim dead flower heads, fence painting, trash and debris removal, and a variety of other tasks as needed. 

Boise Parks & Recreation staff will hold work sessions on Wednesdays, from 8:00 - 11:00 a.m. from mid-March through mid-September. Although some knowledge of plant care is desired, gardeners of all skills and knowledge levels are welcome. Our professional staff will provide direction and training for anyone who is interested in lending a hand.
