BELFASTâ€”At one end of the line, home birthing has become more prevalent in recent years. Itâ€™s only â€śnaturalâ€ť then that at the other end of the line, home funeral preparations might also become more prevalent. This trend has been called â€śGreen Burial.â€ť
Eva Thompson, a board member of the Funeral Consumersâ€™ Alliance of Maine, will compare the financial and environmental costs of different types of burials at a program from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 8Â at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Belfast, 137 Miller St., behind the library.Â Such procedures can include washing and dressing of the body, and burialâ€”either in a Green Cemetery or on property at home.
The presentation, which is free and open to the public, will include information on Maineâ€™s two Green Burial cemeteries. Ms. Thompson also is a member of Last Things (www.lasthings.net), which provides information and resources on such arrangements.
