Caring for Loved Ones at Home after Death and Green Burial

Friday, March 9, 2018

For millennia families have cared for loved ones at home after death and buried them directly in the earth with simplicity and dignity. You can do the same today. Come to Bemis Hall on March 9 at 10 AM to hear Peg Lorenz discuss reclaiming these beautiful traditions. Did you know: embalming is not required; the deceased can be kept at home (2 to 3 days is usual); a family can do the paperwork and transport the deceased; a cement vault is not required by law; both cremation and conventional burial have serious environmental consequences. Get the information you need to make an informed decision.
