                                                   Nova Scotians have been enjoying fermented foods and drinks since the earliest days of European settlement. Sauerkraut, cider, beer, bread, and more all have long and fascinating histories here.

At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death with an objective ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’.

A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.

Death Cafes have spread quickly across Europe, North America and Australasia. As of today, there have been 9614 Death Cafes in 66 countries since September 2011. If 10 people came to each one that would be 96140 participants.

The Death Cafe model was developed by Jon Underwood and Sue Barsky Reid, based on the ideas of Bernard Crettaz.
