Bushel hosts a Death Café, Sunday, March 26

Written By Editor on 3/15/23 | 3/15/23

DELHI, NY—Bushel is pleased to host Delaware County’s first Death Café, facilitated by the Upper Catskills Natural Burial Association. This event takes place on Sunday, March 26, 2–4 pm, at Bushel located at 106 Main Street, Delhi. It is free to attend with a suggested $5 donation.

A Death Café is a group-directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives, or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session. Death Café is designed to be a respectful space for community members to share their questions, curiosities, fears, beliefs, and stories about any and all aspects of death. For more about Death Cafés, please go to the official Death Café website,

The discussion will be led by Anna Rutenbeck, a co-founder of the Upper Catskills Natural Burial Association. Refreshments will be provided. This event will include mature discussions on death and dying and is most appropriate for ages 16+. Please register in advance on Bushel’s website,


Anna Rutenbeck is one of the founders of the Upper Catskill Natural Burial Association and Project Coordinator at the Otsego County Conservation Association. She is passionate about environmental conservation, accessible science education, and alternative death care. She lives in Cooperstown with her partner, dog, and two cats.

The Upper Catskill Natural Burial Association is a regional nonprofit with the goal of starting a natural burial cemetery in the Upper Catskill region of New York State, as well as bringing accessible death education to our community. The UCNBA was founded in April of 2022 by Bob Brzozowski, James Mills, Karen Palmer, and Anna Rutenbeck. The UCNBA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

BUSHEL is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, volunteer-led, mixed-use space dedicated to art, agriculture, ecology, and action. It is located at 106 Main Street in Delhi. For more information, go to
