Welcome to the Monterey Bay Rose Society's web site.

The Monterey Bay Rose Society was founded in 1980 and now has approximately +/– 50 members.

The MBRS presents monthly meetings with interesting programs, publishes a monthly digital newsletter with tips and tricks for growing better roses in our area, plans visits to rose gardens and nurseries, and sponsors an annual rose show in the spring.

Meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month except June, July, November and December. Please Note: Meeting locations will alternate between the Aptos Public Library and in Salinas. Our south Salinas location is at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 1070 Pajaro Street, Salinas, where we will meet when scheduled. For directions to St. Paul's Episcopal Church, follow the link at: www.stpauls-salinas.org/

A Special Thank You, Janey, for hosting one of the best ever MBRS Christmas Parties in her home! Her house was decorated to the max and easily put Martha Stewart to shame! She had a total of six (6!!!) Christmas trees fully loaded with colorful ornaments collected over the years and lighted lawn ornaments to enjoy on our way out. On top of this, Janey and Otto cooked the ham and turkey to perfection. There were twenty members who attended the party, and the dishes they brought to the feast were a gourmand's delight. Thank you to everyone who attended. There was no excuse to go home hungry and it's doubtful that anyone did. For those of you who weren't able to attend, we missed you and hope to see you in the coming new year. For photos from the 2014 Christmas Party, click here: 2014Xmas

Pruning Clinics: January 2015 is just around the corner with the MBRS pruning clinics to be held every weekend in January and one in February. Join us for the first clinic on January 3rd at Bokay Nursery in Salinas. See Schedule of Events for details and a listing of all other clinics.

The book is a “must-have” if you want to grow roses successfully on our central coast.
