Learn about natural burial on Feb. 21
“What (In) Earth Is A Green Burial?” is the title of a talk by Candace Currie on Wednesday, Feb. 21 from 7–8:30 p.m. in the Lincoln Public Library’s Tarbell Room. Going back to burial traditions prior to the Civil War, all burials were natural or “green” burials. Come learn about re-establishing these traditions. And yes, natural burials are legal in Massachusetts, but few cemeteries in the state are performing them. Find out why and how you can change the rules for your cemetery or create a new burial ground that conserves open space. Currie is director of planning and cemetery development for Mount Auburn Cemetery and director of Green Burial Massachusetts, Inc.
