Upcoming Events

Death Café

Death Café is a global movement that brings people together for lively conversations about death over coffee, tea, and food. There are more than 11,751 Death Café gatherings in more than 74 countries. Death Café is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.  ( On November 16, 2016, the Roanoke Times published an article about how the FCAVBR brought the concept of the  Death Café to the NRV.

Blue Ridge Green Burial is sponsoring the following Death Cafes:

  • July 18, August 23, and October 18, 2023. (Location and times will be posted closer to the date.)
