Greening the End of Life: Home Funerals & Green Burials

March 2 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Today, more and more people are choosing to return to simpler, more personalized, more environmentally sustainable death practices, which can include home funerals and green burials. Join us as Anna Benton of End of Life Alternatives leads this interactive workshop.

It is a little known fact that in most states, including Wisconsin, it is legal to act as the funeral director for a close family member, and to care for and transport the body. We will discuss family-directed funerals, including caring for the body after death, and creating powerful rites of passage at home. We will also talk about the environmental impact of embalming, traditional burial, and cremation – and consider more sustainable methods for disposal of the body.

Fees: Non-members: $7.00/person, Trail Pass Members: $4.00/person, All Access Members: Free
