Thursday, November 15, 2018 at 2:00pm

A four person panel will address the topic ‘Out of the Box’ – a different way of thinking about the end of life. The idea is to encourage a better understanding of natural burial. The panel members are Ray Mattholie, who helped form Green Burial Nova Scotia, and is a Director of the Green Burial Society of Canada; Hanna Longard, a student from Mount Allison University who has researched environmentally friendly funeral practices; Michelle Malloy, an experienced counselling therapist; and the Reverend Brieanna Andrews of the Anglican Parish of French Village. Please join us for this important conversation on the topic of greener death care.
