Conservation Conversation – Exploring Green Burials

Join NCLT for a Conservation Conversation to discuss the requirements, reasons for and the options available for green burials. We will be joined by Eva Moseley of Green Burial Massachusetts, Inc.  As a regional land trust, we’ve been asked to consider the option of green burials. This topic has potential interest for many: landowners looking to become part of this revolution with their own land, individuals looking to learn more of their options, religious institutions exploring how to provide members with the services they require, and cities looking at their own burial grounds within their community.

Please send us questions you may have and we will do our best to provide answers and resources.

We look forward to an engaging conversation with you. Please register below for the conversation, we will send you a Zoom link the day before the event.

About our guest speaker:

Eva Moseley is a board member of Green Burial Massachusetts, Inc., and of the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Eastern Massachusetts (FCAEM).  Before retiring in 1999, she was curator of manuscripts at the women’s history library at Radcliffe.   Like NCLT and you in the audience, she cares a lot about what happens to the environment, and as she was born in 1931, she has a personal interest in finding land for a green burial ground soon.

Green Burial Massachusetts (GBM) is a statewide all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose guiding principle is to restore death to its rightful place in the cycle of life. Their mission is twofold: to start the first green cemetery open to all in Massachusetts, and to educate the public about green burial. As part of their Education and Advocacy, Green Burial MA provides talks, workshops, webinars, and other educational programs about natural burial at public libraries, senior centers, green fairs, and other venues. They provide consultation and our expertise to municipalities and nonprofit organizations about natural burial. They also advocate on behalf of individuals who would like to choose natural burial.
