Historic Rose Garden

The historic Rose Garden at St. Joseph's Cultural Center (hidden behind the red brick wal) is a beautiful spot to wander through, relax, and find solace/sanctuary.  Created by the Sisters of Mercy nuns who came here in the late 1860s, the garden boasts heritage roses (some from the original hearty stock brought & planted by the nuns), camellias, yews, holly trees, etc.  Divided into 4 smaller gardens, each surrounded by a boxwood hedge planted in the shape of Celtic harps (best seen from the steps of the grand staircase), the rose garden is a peaceful experience.

SJCC is looking for individuals with or without a green thumb to help pull weeds, trim roses, shrubs & trees, mow lawns and help keep the area behind the red brick wall a beautiful spot for all to enjoy.  If you also have skills with minor building repairs and upkeep, they would be greatly appreciated as well.
