Lincoln Parks and Recreation will host the 14th annual "Put the Beds to Bed" event starting at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, November 7 at the Sunken Gardens, 26th and "D" streets. The event was established to involve residents in the joy of gardening at Sunken Gardens. In the past, 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, heavy-soled shoes and gloves. The length of the project will depend on the number of participants. Residents are asked to bring a shovel or spade and a willingness to get dirty!
Due to the nature of the physical work involved, this volunteer activity is not recommended for children under the age of 13.
