The City of Duluth Parks and Maintenance staff is in preparations for the last day to "Raise the Roses" at the popular Rose Garden in Duluth and they are looking for volunteers to help out. This has become an annual Spring tradition and for many volunteers they have helped season after season.

Volunteers are encouraged to wear gloves and dress for the weather, we all now how fickle the weather can be in Duluth especially right by the lake. The rose turning is today from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm at The Rose garden (13th Avenue East and London Road).

Volunteers should look for City staff who will provide directions on how to "dig-in." City staff and representatives from the Lake Superior Rose Society will be on hand to teach volunteers the spring steps of the "Minnesota Tip" method for tender roses.
