Natural Burial:
Returning to the Wisdom of Our Past
sponsored by Unitarian Church North's Green Committee

Saturday, March 22, 2014
8:30 AM – 4:00 PM
at The Schlitz Audubon Nature Center

Learn how to harvest the wisdom of our past by caring for deceased loved ones at home and returning their remains to Earth using the age-old practice of natural burial. Caring for them in this way is not only the last act of love but the first step in healing. Local professionals will share with you their experiences, explain what's possible today locally, and provide you with plenty of resources. The day will include screening the film, "A Family Undertaking" and the following speakers:

Kevin Corrado – Natural Path Sanctuary Coordinator, Verona, WI; a nature preserve burial ground affiliated with the Farley Center for Peace, Justice and Sustainability

David Brenner – Manager, Prairie Home Cemetery located in Waukesha, WI ,currently offering natural burials in a restored prairie and the traditional cemetery
