A very important topic that many find difficult to speak of.  I favor composting myself.  There is much useful information at Recompose

It is currently legal in Washington, Colorado, and Oregon and very close is a few others.  I know that New York is considering legislation.  I have buried an alpaca and my canine companion of 14 years, Barley, on my farm, but they were not composted first and I understand that composting is much more thorough than a green burial.

Welcome, Leigh!  Can't wait to get into this book!  I have 17.77 acres (crazy, huh? but that's what the survey says) and it is more than a handful, for sure!

Thanks for showing up on Permies, John!  Are some varieties better than others?  (I imagine you probably address that completely in your book.)  Mine came with the property and other than being able to identify that they are elderberries, how do I tell what variety they are?  And is it crucial that I know?

I found mine after I purchased the property.  They seem to be growing along a soggy field.  I don't know what variety they are.  Just how important is that?

I have built (not all by myself) a RMH after hosting a workshop with Erica and Ernie.  The photo is of them testing it out.

The tree seems to be getting lovelier each year, if that's possible.  No new traditions here.  And thanks for the puzzle!  Fun!

Do you have a waiting list or some other alternative for those of us who missed you kickstarter?  Sometimes life just gets so darn busy...
