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. It also sponsors
workshops for Consulting Rosarians, Horticulture Judges and Arrangement
Judges. This website is updated frequently so visit us often.
Our sympathy to the family of Charles Griggs who had been a
member of the Nashville Rose Society before moving to Knoxville
where he was a member of the Tennessee Rose Society.
