Roses in the Heartland (RITH), the 5th Branch of the Rose Society of South Australia Inc was formed on the 1st July 2012 with the inaugural meeting being held at the Barossa Chateau, Lyndoch. An extract of the meeting reads: “President of the Rose Society of South Australia, Mrs Aileen Scott, assisted by Rose Society of South Australia Secretary, Mr Malcolm Watson, presided over the meeting welcoming the enthusiastic group and thanking them for their attendance. Mrs Scott gave an outline of the Societies objectives (as per the Rose Society of South Australia Inc Constitution) which are: To encourage, improve, foster and extend the cultivation and appreciation of the rose; To arrange, sponsor, and/or conduct talks, demonstrations, exhibitions and shows; To do all such other things as may be incidental to the attainment of these objectives”. Sudden Impact for Roses and other Neutrog products are easily accessible to RITH members with a pickup being at Tanunda. Although Roses in the Heartland have only one member’s meeting per year, members on email receive continuous information on what is happening in the ‘Rose World’ by receiving publications such as World Rose News from the World Federation of Rose Societies; Talking Roses with Ludwig, a South African publication; Rose Roundup from the Calgary Rose Society in Canada and information regarding upcoming Rose Conventions that are being hosted throughout the member countries around the world and activities happening within the Australian State Rose Societies and Rose Society of South Australia Branches.
