Our mission is to promote the love and awareness of Old Garden Roses and to encourage others to grow them. To support the efforts of rose lovers to find, catalog, propagate, restore and grow old garden roses. To educate the general public in the history of roses that are older than 100 years.
The Heritage Roses Group was formed in 1975 and is now international. There are chapters in most areas of California, which meet and hold rose events each year. The San Francisco Bay Area Chapter sponsors the CELEBRATION OF OLD ROSES each year on the Sunday after Mother's Day at the El Cerrito Community Center at Ashby and Moeser. This year, it will be held on May 15, 2016. Click here for more information.
