Next Meeting - Friday, November 14
Program - Bob Martin Video Talk

At the NCNH District Conference last month, Bob Martin gave a very funny talk called
"Things about Roses I Didn't Learn in Kindergarten" (Valuable lessons learned, Many from Making Mistakes).
Bob, a long time rose grower and exhibitor is an ARS Master Rosarian, and an Accredited Horticultural and Arrangement Judge.
He and his lovely wife, Dona have a beautiful home in Escondido filled with many roses,
including his eleven registered varieties, among them "Butter Cream". "Pasadena Star", and "Dona Martin".

About the SCCRS

The Santa Clara County Rose Society (SCCRS) was founded in 1927, and is affiliated with the American Rose Society (ARS).
There are currently approximately 200 members in the SCCRS.
Our mission is to encourage interest in the rose, to promote its cultivation,
and to disseminate information on its culture among any interested people.
Although this home page is mostly intended for residents of Santa Clara County,
we hope that people outside the county will find it useful too.
