Due to the coronavirus pandemic and Nebraska's directed health measures, the Munroe-Meyer Guild has moved its Garden Walk online.

Portions of each of the six gardens selected for the 2020 Garden Walk will be available to view on video at the Munroe-Meyer Guild website beginning June 14. Homeowners will showcase a favorite area of their gardens via the videos.

"The homeowners are disappointed that they are not able to share their gardens with everyone this year, but they are excited they have another year to make them even more spectacular," said Luann Rabe, president of the guild. "Mark your calendars for June 13, 2021, as we will come together and walk through these six beautiful gardens. Hope to see you all next year."

While at the website, virtual visitors are encouraged to consider donating to support the guild. The Munroe-Meyer Guild supports innovative projects being conducted at the Munroe-Meyer Institute, Nebraska's only University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research and Service.

The Garden Walk is a major source of income for the Guild to fund its Munroe-Meyer Institute grants, which have supported job training, mobility interventions and many other successful programs and projects at MMI to improve the lives of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. A donation helps provide grants for research, client services and professional projects that impact lives here in Omaha and beyond.

I was wondering how to get in touch with the Guild?

This is good news. I always get inspiration for my own garden through these walks.
