Public Invited to "Put the Beds to Bed" at Sunken Gardens

The public is invited to volunteer for the 15th annual "Put the Beds to Bed" event at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, November 5 at the Sunken Gardens, 26th and "D" streets. The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Public Garden Section created the event to involve residents in the joy of gardening at Sunken Gardens. Over the years, gardening groups, neighbors, Master Gardeners, 4-H groups and friends of Sunken Gardens have helped with the annual "Wake Up the Gardens" and "Put the Beds to Bed" events.

Because the work will involve preparing planting beds for winter, participants should dress in work clothes, wear heavy-soled shoes and gloves and bring a shovel or spade. The length of the project will depend on the number of participants. This volunteer activity is not recommended for children under the age of 13.

Participants are asked to register by Friday, October 28 online at or by contacting Janet Ball at 402-441-7847 or
