Re: Scattering Gardens?

My mother wanted to scatter my older brother's ashes in a lake (in Oregon) where my younger brother had died, but was told that was not allowed on public property. It had something to do with contamination of the public waterways. I have no knowledge of scattering gardens, but that argument may come up when you're talking food production gardens. I'm interested to hear what you find out.

Hi, Folks!

Very interesting article in today's Philadelphia Inquirer Religion section (but not on the Web version or I would include it) about a local Lutheran church that has added what they call a "scattering garden" as a place for folks to scatter the ashes of folks who have been cremated.
