Invitation to a funeral—a funeral within a forest. We are burying the 20th century conventions of death and dying in Massachusetts and at the same time uncovering or rediscovering the timeless concepts of death with dignity, a natural part of life.

Explore with us the value of a home funeral and how a purposeful ceremony can result in a healing and enriching experience for family and loved ones. Come realize what a forest resting place might offer….

Our goal of establishing natural cemeteries in this region and beyond can help preserve our precious lands for future generations as well as make available a meaningful and caring end of life experience.

This symposium will cover a range of topics:
·        Dying at home and natural deathcare
·        History of burial practices
·        Massachusetts laws regarding burials
·        The science of soils and decompostion
·        Different facets of burial options
·        Conservation potential

Hosted by Southeastern Massachusetts Pine Barrens Alliance, Inc.
