Come join us for our June 28 Service Learning Project! We will take our energy and curiosity to Potter’s Field at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, June 28, to provide clean up and maintenance. Also, we can see how the bulbs we planted last fall are doing!
We ask that you wear work clothes, shoes and gloves. If you have gardening tools (i.e., pruners, shovels, gas weed trimmers, rakes, small ladders, trowels, etc.).
Potter’s Field is a little hard to find, although the directions there are easy. Take I-680 to Hwy 75/Mormon Bridge Road. Head south to Young Street. Potter’s Field is tucked in on the north side of Forest Lawn (it’s across the street from the second driveway on your left). There is an arched iron sign over the entrance – but you’ll also see our cars! Parking is available on Young Street – simply pull off to the south side of the road. There is also parking available in Forest Lawn, but you will have to walk around the cemetery to access Potter’s Field.
Potter’s Field in Omaha was part of a movement in the 1800s to find a burial place for individuals who could not afford a standard burial in a cemetery or who were not identified.
