Green Home Funeral Movement Info Meeting Just found out about this meeting--I cannot go, but I wanted to make the information available to those on the Meetup list. What does the new Caring for Our Own Deceased - Family Rights legislation say? Can Minnesotans hold a public visitation with an unembalmed body? Can minors attend this public visitation? Can a family transport a body to the cemetery or crematorium? When will Minnesota have its first "green cemetery"? Find out answers to these and more at a public forum sponsored by Minnesota Threshold Network. Special appearance by State Representative Carolyn Laine, chief author of the new law, and Theresa Purcell, president of the Minnesota chapter of Trust for Natural Legacies. Tuesday, June 29, 6:30 - 8:00 pm

    A green cemetery is a natural space such as a nature preserve, that has been set aside in perpetuity as a burial grounds but which allows natural burials (without embalming, without a concrete vault, and without even a casket, if that is the deceased's and/or the family's wish) and which does not allow protruding above-ground markers. Small, flush-with-the ground markers are allowed, but some families opt for just recording a GPS location at the burial site (no physical marker at all.)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
