Due to the weather conditions, our in-person meeting at Bethesda Senior Center on January 17th was cancelled and we hosted a Zoom Meeting for our members. Bet Sobon, a Native New Yorker who moved to Georgia twenty years ago and began growing roses. Bet shared very detailed knowledge about growing roses in Georgia and covered types, fertilizers, diseases – just all aspects of rose growing. She now grows over 150 roses and has almost all types of roses. Bet is currently President of the Greater Gwinnett Rose Society which is affiliated with The American Rose Society through which she is a certified Consulting Rosarian.

We’re proud to say that our association has its 30-year reunion in 2023! Few fellowships survive that long, but our association has. Started to gather like folks – gardeners – together to socialize and to share knowledge by Don Freidus and Gail Holliman, we started small and have continued to grow in membership over the years. We’ve learned from each other by gardening together on workdays and community gardens and from our monthly programs. We’ve formed fast friendships over the years. Many members have undergone Master Gardener training and quite a few members chose to participate as friends of master gardeners – but all of share this love of gardening…… and we hope it continues another 30 years!
