This weekend during Portland Sunday Parkways I had the pleasure of speaking with Portland Parks Maintenance Supervisor Peggy Glascock. Amongst the discussion topics, we talked about a need for volunteers to help deadhead the roses in the Peninsula Park Rose Garden. OregonLive.com has a nice article covering the topic (HERE) .
If you are interested in working in the garden, there are two orientations coming up soon (June 29th & July 6th @ 9am). Volunteers are to meet at the gazebo. If you have gloves and pruners you like, bring them! People can call with questions: Peggy Glascock 823-3642, or Steve Pixley, Parks Volunteer Coordinator, 823-5121.
