This change of season highlights the cycle we are in.  As we plan clean-up activities for Earth Day and planting oak saplings on Arbor Day this spring, we consider our eventual return to earth too…

The Acorn Cooperative’s mission includes education for care and repair of the earth, and we have learned that one of the most heinous polluters of our ground and water are the unnecessary chemicals and materials used in “modern” burial practices…

Natural or Green Burial is a growing art and science. Please, take time to educate yourself about how much good you can do by planning responsibly. Thank you Marcie for sharing this lovely company’s idea for gentle return –  versus needless  toxic chemicals, steel, wood and concrete in mother earth…

Behold, an Acorn Urn.
