Rhode Island Rose Society Zoom Meeting

Saturday, November 12, 2022: 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM

Join us as we return to a VIRTUAL MEETING this month with special guest speaker Dr. Mark Windham from the University of Tennessee who will give a program on Rose Rosette Disease. Don’t miss this ZOOM  meeting where you will learn all about RRD, including its symptoms and what to do if you find it in your garden. Dr. Windham will also discuss the ongoing research into this disease and its progress.

A business meeting will follow the program, including a report on upcoming schedule of RIRS 2023 programs and events. Also, final orders will be taken for our 2023 RI Rose Society calendars which will be distributed at the December meeting. The price remains at $10 each. The Zoom link to this meeting will be posted on our RIRS email list.
