The San Francisco Rose Society

The San Francisco Rose Society is a non-profit organization created to promote the culture, interest and appreciation of roses.  Established on December 7, 1941, the 78-year old San Francisco Rose Society's goal for 2019 is to raise community awareness of the society within San Francisco -- and to encourage new membership -- and greater participation from existing members.  To meet these goals, the San Francisco Rose Society will offer, between February - October, interactive programs and lectures, rose garden tours, public displays and monthly rose shows.

The best way to learn about roses is to attend monthly meetings of the San Francisco Rose Society.  The meetings are held the second Sunday of each month from February - October, and are open to anyone interested in enjoying, growing or exhibiting roses.
