Volunteers are needed to help with the Natomas Rose Garden’s annual winter pruning.

Pruning sessions are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Saturday in January; rain cancels.

The Natomas Rose Garden is a .4-acre community garden paid for, built and maintained by volunteers. It is located adjacent to the South Natomas Library at 2921 Truxel Road.

Experience is not needed to help with winter pruning rose bushes and other plants, however, volunteers need to bring their own gloves, pruners and loppers. Rose bushes are hard on clothes, so volunteers are encouraged wear jeans and long sleeves.

The Natomas Rose Garden opened for public use in May 2008 and is available for weddings and outdoor events. The garden features 450 rose bushes.
