Public Invited to "Put the Beds to Bed"


The public is invited to volunteer for the 16th annual "Put the Beds to Bed" event at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, November 4 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 this event and the annual "Wake Up the Gardens" in the spring.

Work will include the preparation of planting beds for winter by turning compost into the soil. Volunteers should bring a shovel or spade and wear work clothes, heavy-soled shoes and gloves. The length of the project will depend on the number of participants. This volunteer activity is not recommended for children under age 13.

Register by Friday, October 27 at or by contacting Janet Ball at 402-441-7847 or
