Our Mission

The Bradenton-Sarasota Rose Society is a non-profit organization established to encourage and assist in the cultivation of roses as a hobby and to provide educational resources to its members and to the public. Society meetings are held on a quarterly basis. To join the Society please contact Diane Celeste, Membership Chair at 941-358-6991 or info@b-srs.org.

The Society is affiliated with the American Rose Society, which is dedicated to the promotion of our national floral emblem, the Rose. We encourage our members to join this national rose society.
