Hey Team!Would you like to become a Consulting Rosarian?
Toni Simonetti, our Yankee district CR Representative asked that we publish the upcoming
CR classes. So if you are interested in becoming a CR, read on.
CONSULTING ROSARIAN OPPORTUNITY UPCOMING
I urge everyone to attend the ARS Consulting Rosarian Webinars, to earn a CR designation, to meet your re-accreditation requirements, or just to brush up on what you already know.
The ARS and your National Consulting Rosarian Chairmen Mike and Anita Eckley are making it easy to attend by consolidating the classes into two sessions:
February 3, 2024 12:30 AM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time
· CR Mission and Ethics -- Diane Sommers
· Soil & Water--Steve and Diana Steps
· Chemical Safety -- Joe Muzy
February 10, 2024 12:30 AM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time
· Fertilizer -- Art Wade
· Insects and Diseases -- Baldo Villegas-
New CR Candidates must attend all of the Webinars. If you plan to apply as new CR, please contact Yankee District Chair of Consulting Rosarians Toni Simonetti (email@example.com) to insure all the paperwork is completed by January 31, 2023.
EBlasts will be sent with links to these Webinars. It is recommended that candidates use a computer to register to insure credit for the courses.
Send a copy of this application form to Toni Simonetti (firstname.lastname@example.org)) with a copy to Jennifer at ARS (Jennifer@ars.org).

I can’t stress enough how helpful Consulting Rosarians are to gardeners everywhere, including those who want one rose in their gardens to those who aspire to be exhibitors. It is a rewarding role we can play in the gardening community. If you haven’t yet taken the leap, you won’t regret it. At the very least, you will learn a lot from expert Rosarians through the course. Just do it!
