Dear Conscious Aging & Community Connections Friends,
At our inaugural meeting last October, the # 1 topic you requested was Green Burial. The team heard you, and so we are presenting an expert on the topic. Join us with your questions, concerns, and experiences.

The Green Reaper to Appear in Nehalem!
Everything you want to know about green burial

Elizabeth Fournier, aka The Green Reaper, will speak at the North Coast Recreation District (NCRD), 36155 9th Street, Nehalem. The presentation will be held in the Gallery Saturday, April 27 from 2:00-4:00; $10 cash at the door.

Every year conventional funerals bury millions of tons of wood, concrete, and metals, as well as millions of gallons of carcinogenic embalming fluid. There is a more environmentally conscious and affordable way, and Elizabeth Fournier, affectionately dubbed the “Green Reaper,” walks you through it. She provides comprehensive and compassionate guidance, covering everything from green burial planning and home funeral basics to legal guidelines and outside-the-box options, such as burials at sea. Fournier points the way to green burial practices that consider both the environmental well-being of the planet and the economic well-being of loved ones.

Elizabeth is the author of The Green Burial Guidebook: Everything You Need to Plan an Affordable, Environmentally Friendly Burial. She is a member of the Advisory Board for the Green Burial Council, and the owner and operator of Cornerstone Funeral Services in Boring, Oregon.

Elizabeth will have copies of her books available for purchase.
