A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
During the pandemic, our outdoor green spaces helped to soothe and ground us. Communities everywhere saw an increase in outdoor recreation and gardening during the pandemic. The Stella Arboretum experienced this firsthand. The Arboretum wasn't able to sell plants at the farmers market because it was closed. So, like many of us, they pivoted, selling plants directly out of their greenhouse to support the maintenance of the Arboretum. Their greenhouse was open 24/7 to offer residents a place of respite and a place to get their hands dirty. Folks were able to take what they needed and leave what they could.
Places like these are more important than ever. They make communities more vibrant, people healthier, and they create a more resilient landscape. The Nebraska Statewide Arboretum supports sites like the Stella Arboretum by providing technical expertise, native plant resources and research, and funds to continue building purposeful beauty. You can plant Nebraska by supporting us today.
