Stop And Smell The Roses...

Thank you for visiting the San Joaquin Valley Rose Society's Home Page. We are one of twenty-seven rose societies of the Northern California-Nevada-Hawaii District of the American Rose Society. We are the southern most society in the District and are located in the center of the San Joaquin Valley. We were organized in January, 1950.

Our society is dedicated to promoting the rose in all of its' aspects-exhibiting, arranging, growing and much more. We have lots of experts who like to share their rose knowledge. Come to a meeting and let someone share their "love of roses" with you. We hope you will enjoy our site. We love to show and tell about our favorite flower.

The San Joaquin Valley Rose Society is a non-profit affiliate of The American Rose Society. The goals of the Society are to encourage and educate the public in growing and showing roses.

The San Joaquin Valley Rose Society meets on the fourth Monday of the month at the Friends Community Church, located at 5688 N. 1st., Fresno. Doors will open at 6:00 P.M. for placing specimens and arrangements in the Little Rose Show at the May, September and October meetings. The program or guest speaker for the meeting will begin at 6:30 P.M. and will be followed by a short business meeting. American Rose Society Consulting Rosarians are on hand to answer questions about rose culture and to give timely cultural tips. There are refreshments and door prizes at each meeting. There are no scheduled meetings in the months of June, July, August or December. Check the "Calendar of Events for 2013" webpage for special activities for these months.
