From the mock green burial at our 2015 June forum.

We hope you can attend our annual June public forum, this year focusing on green burial. Join us for a mock graveside service and green burial; learn more about current options and regulations around green burial; share stories and ideas.

 
WHEN: Tuesday, June 20, 2017, 7:00 pm
WHERE: Prairie Oaks Memorial Eco Gardens, 8225 Argenta Trail, Inver Grove Heights, MN 55077 (between Highway 55 and 149).
 
This event is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome to help the Minnesota Threshold Network continue our work.
Please note that Prairie Oaks has no bathroom facilities. We’re keeping the program deliberately short for this reason, but you know your body best; please take care of yourself when deciding whether to come.

Driving Directions:

The directions on Google Maps are accurate for Prairie Oaks Memorial Eco Gardens, 8225 Argenta Trail, Inver Grove Heights, 55077.

A couple of helpful hints:

  • When driving from the Twin Cities on Hwy 55E, remember to turn RIGHT onto Argenta Trail from 55. (The signage there is misleading.) Only .3 miles after turning onto Argenta, folks turn LEFT to stay on Argenta Trail. (If you miss this turn and go straight, the road turns into Yankee Doodle.)
  • After this turn, drive .3 miles and Argenta curves to the right. Soon after the curve, turn right onto Auburn Path, which is the access road to Prairie Oaks Memorial Eco Gardens.
  • There is NOT a permanent sign indicating the entrance to Prairie Oaks but you will see a Truck Repair and Equipment business at the entrance.
  • MTN will mark the entrance to Prairie Oaks with a bright sign!!
