Berkeley Rose Garden
The Berkeley Rose Garden has undergone extensive renovation, a full circle opportunity for the Berkeley Garden Club as we were instrumental in it's original planting in 1937. We helped with pruning and maintenance of the extensive collection of roses as well as planting and maintaining the slope leading down to the garden.
The beautiful pergola which was a destination for many years was rebuilt.
The enthusiastic and charming new gardener, Roger Kubalek has great plans for the garden and welcomed community participation.
Rose Garden Slope
The slope leading down to the garden was cleared, graded and planted with deer proof, drought tolerant low maintenance foliage plants.
Planting Plan - January 2017
Patricia Saint John developed plans, with a list of suggested plants, for the slope, the area under the Berkeley Rose Garden sign, and the arch behind the overlook. The plans have been approved by the City of Berkeley, plants ordered, and delivered! BGC volunteers planted the slope on Tuesday, January 31, 2017, a sunny day between the storms.
