Preserving our collection cannot be realized without the volunteer efforts of many, and without the financial support to provide adequate care and maintenance. Did you know that monthly contributions provide an efficient way of sustaining this rose preservation effort? The Friends of Vintage Roses owns and maintains the historic roses from the "Lowery-Robinson" collection, currently located in Sebastopol, California, about 50 miles north of San Francisco.
All contributions are tax deductible to the extent provided by law. Our Mission: The Friends of Vintage Roses exists to preserve and enhance the unique and extensive collection of historic roses developed by Gregg Lowery and Phillip Robinson, to establish the collection in a garden, and to share the collection with other public rose preservation efforts, all for the purpose of educating the public about the importance of the rose to human history, cultures, technology and science.
