The Lehigh Valley Rose Society, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational horticultural society and local chapter of the American Rose Society. Our program is focused on education, advocacy, and research about roses; related pests, and the diseases that impact their health.
Our members view the Bethlehem Rose Garden as an ideal site in the Lehigh Valley to encourage community engagement and education. We actively volunteer in the garden restoration with the goal of bringing it back to its former glory.
With a successful start to this massive project in June 2020, members of LVRS will be making a contribution as a group to the Mount Airy Neighborhood Association (MANA) to keep the project going towards its goal.
Since our organization is licensed by the PA Department of Agriculture as a plant merchant and soil amendment and specialty fertilizer producer/seller, we are able to purchase roses, companion plants, and fertilizer ingredients at wholesale prices. We are raising funds from our members to make a contribution of roses and/or fertilizer toward the project in an effort to stretch the overall budget and do our part to fulfill our mission statement:
"...to promote and encourage amateur and professional rose horticulture; promote the rose as a symbol of beauty and friendship; encourage our members and the general public in growing the National Floral Emblem; and educate both our members and the community at large as to the care of roses."
The Fishers have offered to match any donations made by our members to this fundraiser. Be sure to check with your employer to see if they offer a donation matching program to double your dollars!
Donation receipts will be provided to the email address listed on your order.
Through our website, we are unable to have a "blank price" box. We have therefore selected various preset dollar amounts. If there is a specific amount you would like to give that is not listed, you are able to "combine" the preset amounts. For example, if you wanted to donate $60.00, you could add the $50.00 option and the $10.00 option to your "cart."
You are also always able to mail in a donation of any dollar amount. Please make checks payable to:
