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: Meetings are held at the Aptos Public Library or in Salinas when announced. 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/

Next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, March 26, 2015. Location and topic will be announced.

Work Party is scheduled for Saturday, March 28, 2015 at 10 a.m. Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds, MBRS Display Garden. The remaining fence posts need to be installed and wired. Strong, able-bodied persons needed!

Meeting Notes from February 26, 2015: Janey Leonardich opened the meeting because Jim Sauvé had to work late. Paul McCollum pressed the issue of what to do in the event we are unable to get a speaker for the evening. Since we had no program that night, it was the perfect time for a round table discussion. Janey suggested downloading ARS Power Point Presentations, many of which were of interest to everyone present; so as soon as a decision is made, the topic will be announced. Please let us know if you have a special subject you would like to see discussed.
