Visit the gardens of New Zealand

By From page B10 | January 13, 2014

Have you ever dreamed of visiting the lush landscapes and the gardens of New Zealand and Australia?

The Mother Lode Rose Society is so fortunate to have Steve and Susie Jones present an extraordinary PowerPoint program that will take viewers along on their many travels around the world for roses.

The couple has visited gardens in Belgium, Germany and China as well as the gardens in New Zealand and Australia.

Steve is the current president of the World Federation of Rose Societies. He and wife Susie recently relocated from Southern California to a 5-acre home in Fiddletown. They moved 150 roses from their garden of 400 roses in Southern California to their new home.

Steve has an abundance of qualifications: past president of the American Rose Society, International Rose Judge, Master Consulting Rosarian, author, lecturer, editor and he collects anything to do with roses. He is also the owner of one of the largest private rose book collection in the U.S.

The Mother Lode Rose Society invites the public to its monthly meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 1:30 p.m. at the Amador Senior Center, 229 New York Ranch Road in Jackson, to hear this exceptionally vibrant couple speak about their extensive travels in and about the rose world, plus a few adventures along the way.

The meeting is free.

For more information go to or call Steve Kinnick at 209-304-5465.
