THIS MONTH’S ORGANIZATION:


This month we are raising donations at the register for Narrow Ridge Earth Literacy Center​. Narrow Ridge is home to the first and only green burial ground in TN. This Natural Burial Preserve was established to provide a burial alternative without the use of conventional materials and chemicals and provides a dignified option for families unable to afford burial services. Donations will be used to support creation of composting restroom facilities and the building of a sustainable storage facility for materials needed for memorial services.
