The next planting day for the Heritage Rose District of New York City is on Saturday, October 22, 2011 which marks the beginning of their third season. Heritage Rose District of New York City is a joint effort between the Borough President's Office of Manhattan and the Heritage Rose Foundation to plant roses that once grew in Harlem a long, long time ago.
Since October 2009, the Heritage Rose Foundation have planted over 600 heritage roses in Harlem. This fall event would be a kick off of the “Season of 1000 Roses” with a goal to add 1000 additional heritage roses to Harlem by April 2012.
On Oct. 22 at Trinity Church Cemetery where the project started, the Borough President would make opening remarks and Steven Scanniello, President of the Heritage Rose Foundation will speak of the mission of the project and a brief update. A rose will be handed off to a representative from the different planting sites. Plants will be distributed to all sites included in the autumn planting with focus on the Trinity Church Cemetery and The Church of the Intercession.
