  • Introduction: Join us at the MCC Rose Garden as we revitalize and prune the garden for the spring!
The MCC Rose Garden, a partnership between Mesa-East Valley Rose Society and the Mesa Community College is the largest public rose garden in the desert southwest and is the only significant public rose garden begun since 1974.  The garden provides a beautiful setting for students and the public to enjoy our nation's national flower-the rose.


Volunteers are needed for a large scale pruning event on Saturday, January 13th, 2018.  Winter pruning will stimulate new growth and promote a spring burst of rose buds.  This is a city-wide volunteer event where hundreds of volunteers are needed! Families, friends, faith-based groups, clubs and service organizations are welcome!  200 rose bushes will be raffled off for participating volunteers to take home at the conclusion of the pruning.
