Visit Southeast Nebraska Gardens

Every NSA garden is unique in appearance and mission. Each seeks to emphasize the beauty and uniqueness of their town, to demonstate good plant and practices for their region and to serve the goals of the community. Garden gatherings Oct. 12 will celebrate fall at:
11:30-1 p.m. in Humboldt. Dedication of the Southeast Nebraska Cancer Memorial Garden, which serves as a tribute to cancer survivors and a memorial to those who have passed; a tranquil garden with trees, shrubs, flowers, rockwork and a waterfall offers healing and retreat.
1:30-4 p.m. in Brownville. Tour and tree-planting at the Furnas Arboretum which has its own art gallery within the garden, a prairie area and a good variety of trees and shrubs.
5-7:30 p.m. in Stella. Art show with work by area artists, tours of the garden and refreshments. The Stella Arboretum was originally planted for an elementary school that was later closed but the garden carries forward as a community gathering treasure hosting plant sales, parties and events year-round. The fall gathering highlights the work of area artists, along with the fall beauties in the garden.

Brownbag on the Winter Garden

Thursday, November 1, 2018
12:00 pm1:00 pm
Jane Snyder Trail Center, 228 N 21st St. Lincoln

Garden columnist Jan Riggenbach will offer suggestions for a garden to enjoy through the long winter months. “If we’re going to live in the Midwest where the garden is dormant almost half the time, we should devote more time to choosing plants with the off-season in mind,” she says. After moving from the country to the city, Riggenbach focused on plants with winter presence— evergreens, berried shrubs, grasses, plants with colorful bark, attractive seedheads and perennials that flower in the off-season. Her presentation will offer suggestions and beautiful photos of plants for the winter garden. This all-things-green brownbag is sponsored by Nebraska Statewide Arboretum, Lincoln Parks & Recreation, UNL Institute of Agriculture & Natural Resources and the Lincoln Downtown Association.
