Welcome to the website of the Tenarky District of the American Rose Society.  The Tenarky District is one of 18 ARS geographic districts in the United States.  It is comprised of 9 local societies in Tennessee, Eastern Arkansas, and Kentucky.

Tenarky has a district convention and rose show each fall and a workshop each winter, usually in February.  The district also holds schools for Consulting Rosarians, and audits for Horticulture Judges and Arrangement Judges.  This website is updated frequently so visit us often.
