When November 06, 2018 at 7pm 2 hrs
You are cordially invited to attend a free talk entitled Green/Natural Burials with:
 
Mark Richardson, Manager of Cemetery Services Municipal Works, City of Niagara Falls
AND
Ellen Newman, Licensed Funeral Director, Specializing in green, and natural burials and co-instigator of the Good Green Death Project 

A Green Burial means that there is no embalming of the body, you can use a shroud, a cardboard, wicker or soft wood (pine) casket that is free from chemicals or metal (nails, glues, varnish etc) and there is no concrete vault under the casket. The body and it’s temporary home are completely biodegradable. (Ashes to ashes) A green cemetery typically does not have individual headstones, (there may be a central monument), there is typically no grass, but a landscape of native plants and trees. The ground is not vulnerable to any contaminants. A Green Burial is an environmentally sensitive alternative to conventional burial and cremation.
