Volunteer Opportunities at Owen Rose Garden
Volunteers are a large part of what keeps the Owen Rose Garden in bloom. Many feel a special connection to the rose garden for the countless graduation photos, weddings and family picnics it has hosted over the decades. Others connect to this aromatic garden nestled between the Willamette River and downtown core because it provides a peaceful place to stop and smell the roses.
Join us and help keep Eugene's iconic rose garden looking beautiful. Our volunteer events are increasing to twice monthly. Starting January 2020, we've got more opportunities for you to connect with fellow garden enthusiasts and learn about roses.
These work parties are a great chance for novice and seasoned gardeners to volunteer together alongside our expert staff. Get hands-on experience in perennial plant care with guidance on pruning techniques, propagation methods, fertilizer needs, and general rose care. No experience is necessary.
