Mini Rose Planting and Art Workshop
Friday, May 7, 4 p.m.

Calling all kids, ages 5 through 10, to the ever-popular Children’s Mini Rose Planting and Art Workshop hosted by the Southampton Rose Society and presented by rosarian Peter Bertrand at Rogers Memorial Library. Each child will pot their own rose plant to take home with them and will receive an instruction booklet to teach them more about these special flowers with the hope that they will form a lifelong passion for gardening and roses. After the demonstration, children are invited to either color garden sketches by Nancy Rollins or create their own Mother’s Day cards or artwork.
