Rose Study Garden at Cheekwood – as of October 16, 2021

The Rose Study Garden at Cheekwood has a two-fold purpose: provide a beautiful garden of roses for Cheekwood visitors to enjoy, but primarily to function as a teaching garden for new and experienced rosarians.

This photo gallery is as of October 16, 2021. Cheekwood is full of fall color and the Rose Study Garden at Cheekwood is in full bloom for the “Cut Your Own Bouquet” event. Twenty-five participants attended the workshop to learn about taking care of roses. Each participant was able to leave with their own bouquet of beautiful Rose Study Garden blooms. The workshop was conducted by NRS members John Wendler, Gene Meyer and Ron Daniels.

December 5, 6:00-8:00pm – Christmas Party

The Nashville Rose Society Christmas Party will be held on Sunday, December 5, from 6:00 – 8:00pm at Belmont University. NRS will provide turkey, ham, rolls and drinks, and dinnerware; members are asked to bring their favorite dish.

The party will be held in our Belmont meeting room (Ayers C & D), with lots of space to social distance.

Please see Marty’s email for more information on the gift exchange and RSVPing if you plan to attend.

Parking: The Ayers Academic Center is located at the corner of Wedgewood and 15th avenues on the northern front of campus. The entrance to the parking garages for both buildings is the same as we used last year. There are two elevator banks in the garage underneath the Ayers Academic Center – the South and North elevators. Members should park by, then use, the North elevators to the 4th floor. These open up directly across from our meeting room – which is Ayers C & D. It is not easy to find the meeting room from the South elevators!
