A monthly series exploring UNL’s East Campus gardens continues June 7 with a walkthrough of trial planting beds by Varner Hall.
The UNL garden tours are noon to 1 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month through November. Each tour is led by Emily Levine, special projects research horticulturist.
“The tours are informal with wonderful sharing by participants,” Levine said. “In essence, the tours are designed to help us learn to see and to learn what to look for. We’ll also observe how different plants change through the seasons and share maintenance tips. And I’ll place plants in the larger context of history and the arts.”
The June 7 tour will begin at the south end of the Varner Hall parking lot, 3835 Holdrege St. The planting beds include herbaceous perennials. Non-reserved faculty/staff parking (Area A permit) parking is available in the Varner Hall parking lot.
