Consider the Green Burial Alternative




Alesia Skinner, Owner, Paxtang Cemetery

The Woods Edge at Paxtang Cemetery will present an informational seminar about green burial options at 6 p.m., September 19, and 2 p.m., October 2.

In a recent study by the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association, 67 percent of those queried would choose green burial if they knew of its existence. Paxtang Cemetery is the only certified Green Burial Ground by The Green Burial Council in central Pennsylvania where there are no vaults, no embalming and the Native Forest is planted on top of every burial.

Location: 490 N. Paxtang Ave., Harrisburg. To RSVP (required), call 717-564-2110. For more information, email Info@PaxtangCemetery.com or visit PaxtangCemetery.com.
