I spoke at the Flex School to Lisa Phillip's social studies class Mind Blown about green burial as part of a study section on death and Dia de los Muertos. Besides the opportunity to spread the word about green burial it was a great opportunity to interest young people in talking about death; maybe they will be less averse to it as adults.
I will be attending the National Home Funeral Alliance 2017 Conference September 22 and 23 in Maryland and bringing a copy of The Natural Burial Cemetery Guide for the weekend's silent auction. Many of the guide's best supporters are home funeral practitioners and death doulas.
"I love cemeteries and have a plethora of books about graveyards on my library shelf to prove it," says Mary Reilly-McNellan in the opening line of her review of The Natural Burial Cemetery Guide for Natural Transitions magazine. "I don't, however, have one that specifically targets natural burial cemeteries, so I was delighted to learn about Ann Hoffner's new publication." Read Mary Reilly-McNellan's full review.
