Children’s Mini Rose Planting and Art Workshop 2021
At The Rogers Memorial Library

(Rain date is Saturday, May 8th from 11am to 1pm)
Calling all kids, ages five through ten, for the ever-popular Children’s Mini Rose Planting and Art Workshop hosted by the Southampton Rose Society and presented by rosarian Peter Bertrand. In its fifteenth year, this event will take place on the grounds of the Rogers Memorial Library on Friday, May 7th from 4 to 6pm Rain date is Saturday, May 8th from 11am to 1pm.
The goal of this event is to foster a love and appreciation for the rose, which is now the official flower of our nation, state, and village. Peter will give a demonstration on planting and caring for mini rose bushes, and each child will pot their own rose plant to take home with them. Children will also receive an instruction booklet, The Mini Rose and How It Grows, to teach them more about these special flowers with the hope that they will form a lifelong passion for gardening and roses.
After the demonstration, children are invited to either color garden sketches by Nancy Rollins or create their own Mother’s Day cards or artwork. Crayons, colored pencils and folded blank cards will be provided.
All current COVID-19 requirements and restrictions will be followed. Maximum number of participants is twelve (12). Participants can register for this free event by either visiting the Library Family Department desk or calling 631-283-0774 ext. 519.
