Join MTN Twin Cities for our annual reading information exchange: with a twist. Bring a book, article, or burning question that’s got you fired up and thinking about death and dying issues in new ways, even if it’s not directly related (though of course we love hearing about those, too). For instance, some questions we’ve been asking include: How do we fight hate with love? How might our culture’s fear and avoidance of death feed the acts of hate and oppression that have recently been committed in this country, and what can we do to change it?
We’ll each talk briefly about our materials and ideas and then use all of that excitement to help determine MTN TC’s direction for the coming year.
Our passions pull us in many directions. We embrace that complexity and look forward to seeing where it leads us.
The meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 19, 2017, at 7:00 pm. We will meet at the home of Anne Murphy, 287 Mount Curve Blvd, St. Paul 55105. MTN TC meetings are free and open to the public.
Hi, all. Due to predictions of inclement weather this evening, we have decided to postpone the June forum for one week. The event will now take place on Tuesday, June 20, 2017, 7:00 pm, at Prairie Oaks Memorial Eco Garden. Please see the original event post for full event details, including details directions to Prairie Oaks.
Thank you for your understanding, and stay safe this evening.
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.
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!!
