President's Welcome

     Welcome to the Tallahassee Area Rose Society (TARS). The Society welcomes new members and visitors who share their enthusiasm for all aspects of roses. The Society is made up of people who share a mutual love for roses. Members range from beginners with as few as two rose bushes to American Rose Society certified Consulting Rosarians with rose gardens of over 500 bushes. They enjoy each other’s company socially and the camaraderie gained from sharing their knowledge of all aspects of enjoying roses. Sharing along with exhibiting are probably their greatest interest and they never tire of talking about roses, the fun of growing them, using them and the frustrating challenges of trying to grow the “perfect rose”.

     Members participate in nine meetings each year. Each meeting features a program on one specific subject related to rose culture and rose related fun. They also maintain the “Peace Garden” in Genevieve Randolph Park located within the Tallahassee downtown chain of parks. They join volunteers maintaining the rose gardens at Goodwood Museum and Gardens – a restored and well-maintained southern plantation. And, members’ root approximately 1,800 roses composed of about 118 varieties of Old Garden Roses that are offered for sale in the spring of each year. The Society also holds a members annual picnic and a rose show that is free to the public. Members are very active in the community conducting workshops and giving presentations to interested groups. They never tire of talking about “ROSES”.

     Have Fun, Frank Parker
