Wednesday, April 12: 7-8:30pm via Zoom.
Join nationally known author, funeral reform advocate, and speaker Lee Webster to learn how you can plan a funeral that is natural, affordable, and meaningful. She’ll reveal how funerals have evolved to be the costly rites that they are today, and how to ensure that our end of life choices truly reflect our values.
We’ll explore the growing wave of interest in human composting, alkaline hydrolysis, and natural burial to see what makes the most environmental and financial sense. We’ll delve into legal rights and responsibilities, the problems with cremation, and the reasons why saving land through burial strategies in the face of accelerated migration patterns due to pandemic and climate change is so important.
If you’re looking for home funeral and green burial how-tos and why-fors, join us!
COST: Free and open to all.
