April 2017: Spring is a great time of year to take up new hobbies. With the nicer weather and flowers blooming, gardening is a seasonal favorite, especially in Tulsa. Whether you’re an experienced gardener looking for some new tricks or starting completely new in this refreshing pastime, be sure to check out these different events happening in April at the Tulsa Garden Center.
Volunteer Days in the
Tulsa Municipal Rose Garden
Because of another mild winter and early spring, some help is needed putting the Rose Garden in tip-top shape. Volunteers are asked to bring their friends, some gloves and their favorite weeding tools and meet in the north end of the Garden Center parking lot. It’s a great chance to do a good deed, have fun, and make new friends. The Tulsa Garden Center will supply snacks and all the water you can drink.
The Rose Garden Volunteer dates for 2017 are the 3rd Saturday of each month, April through October, from 7:00am – 10:00am. The Tulsa Municipal Rose Garden looks forward to seeing you on April 15th.
