Roosevelt Island Garden Club gardeners, Marjorie and Carole, are two of the founding members of the Manhattan Rose Society. On Saturday morning about ten gardeners/rose lovers from RIGC attended the workshop and helped with the pruning. The garden was filled with a concentrated quiet as they worked in the spring sunshine. The five rosarians, who trained for many hours to hold the title, Consulting Rosarian, included Louis Arce, Shinichi Harada, Mary Ann De Rosa, Dr. Joseph Grizzanti, and Mrs. Pat Shanley, currently the President-Elect of the 8000 member strong American Rose Society.
Mrs. Shanley will be presenting at the upcoming event with the Manhattan Rose Society.
