Join other adults for an overview presentation on ‘green’ burials. Co-hosted by:

Candace Currie, Director, Green Burial Council& Mount Auburn Cemetery

Ruth Faas, owner, Mourning Dove Studio of Arlington, MA

From the Civil War through today, American funeral practices have evolved into a highly formalized, cost intensive and environmentally challenging industry. Green burials can provide a meaningful, economical, and aesthetic means for honoring the dead and providing families and friends with a new (yet traditional) framework for funeral customs and practices.

Please attend in you are interested in learning about this low impact, environmentally friendly, and very much legal means of caring for the deceased.

Refreshments will be served from 6:30 to 7 PM followed by the presentation.  It promises to be an interesting and informative evening.  If you would like to attend, please register at:


Hope to see you at the Goodnow on April 26th.
