Join us at our monthly meetings!

The Nashville Rose Society serves all of Middle Tennessee by sharing knowledge and information about our national flower, the rose. Through a monthly newsletter and meetings that feature regional and nationally recognized speakers, we bring you advice and instruction geared to growing roses in the specific soil and climatic conditions of this area.

Monthly meetings, unless otherwise noted, are held at Cheekwood Botanic Hall/Visitor Services Building at the Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art on the first Sunday of the month. The meetings are free to guests, as is admission to Cheekwood for meetings. Simply tell the gate attendant that you are there for the Nashville Rose Society meeting. Click here for directions to Cheekwood Botanical Gardens.

If you missed attending the Tenarky District meeting in Bowling Green in February, 2016, listen to Chris VanCleave's RoseChat broadcast from the meeting. You will hear interviews with our own Ron McDaniels and Cindy Worch. Click here for the podcast page, then click the Play button.
