Going Out Green Workshop: Design a Funeral & Burial Good for You and the Planet

Find out how you can continue to care for the planet and save money by planning a home funeral and choosing a green burial.

This part-lecture, part-experiential evening will explore how the funeral process works, cover legal rights and responsibilities, provide the basics on green burials and home funerals, and give you the tools to make choices that are affordable, environmentally friendly, and meaningful to the people who matter most in your life. From learning how to fill out the dreaded paperwork to the myriad sustainable alternatives to a traditional funeral, you’ll leave with a plan for your final exit that reflects your values and doesn’t break the bank.

PRESENTER: Lee Webster is the Director of New Hampshire Funeral Resources, Education & Advocacy, emeritus President of the National Home Funeral Alliance, and emeritus Board of Directors and educational consultant and development for the Green Burial Council. She is a writer, researcher, hospice volunteer, home funeral guide, conservationist, and frequent speaker on the benefits of home funerals and green burial.
