February 4, 1:30 – 4:00pm – “Buzz Session: Rose, Thorn and Bud”

The first meeting of the Nashville Rose Society in 2024 will be held on February 4, 2024, in the the Massey Auditorium of Botanic Hall / Visitor Services Building at Cheekwood Garden and Estate. We will have refreshments at 1:30 and the program will start at 2:00 PM.

Join us for a Buzz Session! This meeting will provide an opportunity for you to share what you love about growing roses, to present your challenges over the past year or so, and to tell us how the NRS can be helpful to you as you work to cultivate healthy roses. The meeting will begin with introductions, then we will have attendees call-off table numbers to balance the groups (remember picking volleyball teams in school!). The sessions will begin at approximately 2:30pm and will last about 45 minutes. Following the discussions, we will meet back as a group and each table will present any comments of note from their discussions. A CR will be assigned to each table and the table will appoint a “reporter” to note comments and report back to the entire group.
