Minnesota Threshold Network
MInnesota Threshold Network : Created in 2008
This informal group informs and educates interested people in the Twin Cities about home funerals and green burials. They were instrumental in supporting the 2010 law that was enacted to bring more choice to families wishing for home funerals.
On their website they have relevant resources and have a number of open meetings each year.
Some of the volunteer leaders have been leading classes and giving presentations, including hospice and church organizations . Once a year an open community forum is held at a library.
In addition, a group of interested participants have been trained in care of the body and the elements of holding a vigil, and are available as volunteers on call to assist families in the community.
