Wake Up the Beds

Next date: Saturday, May 11, 2024 | 08:30 AM to 12:00 PM


Help plant the beds.

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.


  • Participants should dress in work clothes, wear heavy-soled shoes and gloves.


  • Participants are asked to register by the Monday before the event by contacting zhalley@lincoln.ne.gov.


  • The length of the project will depend on the number of participants so this event could likely end before noon.
  • This volunteer activity is not recommended for children under the age of 13 due to the level of work with tools.
  • In case of inclement weather, the event will be postponed and staff will communicate rescheduling information with volunteers directly through email.
