What’s involved in creating a green funeral? Can you conduct a burial on private property? Learn rules and regulations, shroud wrapping techniques, how to locate biodegradable funeral products, and more.  Complementing the session on Natural Burial Options in the Pacific NW presented by three natural cemetery operators, this workshop covers green funerals from the mortician’s perspective.

An undertaker and owner of Cornerstone Funeral Services, Elizabeth Fournier calls herself the “Green Reaper”.  She practices what she preaches, working hands-on with local families to teach them what she’s learned in her 25 years in the funeral industry. Cornerstone serves five small towns in rural Clackamas County, Oregon.
