Public Invited to "Put the Beds to Bed" at Sunken Gardens November 7

The public is invited to volunteer for the 20th annual "Put the Beds to Bed" event starting at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, November 7 at Sunken Gardens, 26th and "D" streets. The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Public Garden Section created the event to involve residents, master gardeners, gardening and school groups and others in the joy of gardening at Sunken Gardens.

Due to the pandemic, the only work to be done will be to turn the soil in the annual beds. All participants must check in at the pavilion to be assigned a work location. Volunteers should bring a shovel or spade and wear work clothes, heavy-soled shoes and gloves. The duration of the project will depend on the number of participants.

COVID-19 guidelines for this event include:

The registration deadline is Friday, October 30 at or by contacting Zac Halley at 402-326-9045 or If the event is cancelled due to bad weather, it will be rescheduled for Saturday, November 14.
