Join nationally known author, funeral reform advocate and speaker Lee Webster for an afternoon of stripping away the veil to learn how you can plan a funeral that is natural, affordable, and meaningful. We’ll reveal the truth about how we came by our current funeral expectations, and how we can bring back care for our own dead to ensure that our funerals truly reflect our values.
If you’re looking for home funeral and green burial how-to’s and why-for’s, join us!
Some topics we'll explore: legal rights and responsibilities, the problems with cremation, green alternatives that are not green at all.
COST: Free and open to all.
