Residents are invited to join the Public Garden Section of the Parks and Recreation Department for the annual spring cleanup Monday, April 14 through Friday, April 18 at the Hamann Rose Garden, 27th and "B" streets. From 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., staff will demonstrate rose pruning and give information on growing roses as they lead the cleanup of hybrid tea, Floribunda, Grandiflora and shrub roses.
Participants are asked to bring thorn-proof rose gloves and pruning shears. A tool-sharpening station will be available, and staff will give tips on garden tool maintenance. Members of the Lincoln Rose Society will be at the garden from 5 to 7 p.m. April 14 and 16 to answer questions and work with volunteers.
