To live well is to get ready to die well. Our daily lives create the person we will be when we die and, thus, the kind of death we will experience. This educational talk will explore goals, strategies, and tactics we can adopt to live meaningful, fulfilled, and productive lives. Chris Palmer will lead us in a reflection of our own lives, contemplating what matters deeply to us, considering how we find purpose and meaning, devising a personal mission statement, examining how to take better care of ourselves, and exploring how all of these practices can impact on the quality of our death.



Chris Palmer is an author, speaker, wildlife filmmaker, conservationist, educator, professor, and advocate for reform in aging, death, and dying. He serves on the Board of Montgomery Hospice (Maryland) and Prince George’s Hospice and as Vice President of the Board of the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Maryland and Environs. Chris also serves on the Advisory Council for the Maryland Office of Cemetery Oversight and on the Board of the Bethesda Metro Area Village (BMAV). Within BMAV, he founded and leads the aging, dying, and death group. Chris is a trained hospice volunteer and was formerly a Board member of the Green Burial Association of Maryland. He frequently gives presentations and workshops to community groups on aging, death, and dying issues.



Chris has written ten books. The latest, to be published by Rowman & Littlefield later this year, is Achieving a Good Death: A Practical Guide to the End of Life—proceeds from all his books fund scholarships for American University students.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration required.

NOTE: THE GARDEN PLANNING WORKSHOP IS BEING HELD FROM 11 - NOON; THE SEED SWAP WILL FOLLOW IMMEDIATELY AFTER FROM NOON - 2:00 PM.


Do you love to garden? Have extra seeds from this past year to share with others? Join us for our first Seed Swap. We will have supplies (envelopes, labels) to enable you to take home seeds for planting. Non-GMO seeds only please.


As part of the Seed Swap we are partnering with Growing Gardens, a local nonprofit that uses the experience of growing food in schools, back yards and correctional facilities to cultivate healthy and equitable communities. They will be giving a gardening workshop to help you prepare for the season by reviewing gardening planning and planting skills. By creating a planting calendar and garden map, you can start to imagine what the garden will look like for the year. We will also discuss when and how to plant the seeds we want to see flourish throughout the season.



This event is free and open to the public. Registration is recommended but not required. Please use the entrance ramp closest to the raised garden beds on NE 58th. Free parking is available in the church parking lot and on the street. (NOTE: this event will be canceled in the case of inclement weather. Check the Events calendar for updates as needed.)

The group will continue to meet monthly. Depending on the size of the group we will meet either in one of our homes or in a room at the Rose City Park United Methodist Church. Our goal is to have a quiet, comfortable place where people can hear each other and share feelings, thoughts and questions in a supportive environment.

The group is intended to serve anyone who has suffered a loss recently or in the past and is looking for support in navigating a new reality, sharing their experience or finding resources to cope with grief, loss or the challenges of living on one’s own.

There is no moderator for this group. We are simply people who share the experience of having lost someone dear to us and are looking for support or to provide support to others in a similar situation.
