Bob Henrickson is the Horticulture Program Coordinator for the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum, a private, non-profit organization, housed at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Their mission statement is “sustainable landscapes for healthy homes and communities.”
The Arboretum acquires, propagates and produces a wide variety of regionally native and exotic collector plants for plant development and sales to members and the public. They have a shade house and display garden on campus to demonstrate low input, native landscape ideas. Bob also co-hosts a gardening talk show on KZUM, Lincoln’s community radio station.
