Green Burial and Natural Death Care discussion


On Sunday, March 19, at 2 pm, the West Tisbury library will host a discussion about Green Burial and Natural Death Care with Judith Lorei, a green burial advocate; Heather Massey, a consultant and natural death care educator; and Jan Buhrman, a local green burial resource. According to a press release, this program is part of the library’s “Explorations in Healthy Living” series.

As we’ve come to realize the importance of environmental issues in every area of our lives, we also need to consider the implications and consequences of choices that we have in deciding what to do with our body after death. Our final disposition can have a lasting environmental impact, and yet few realize that their values in life can be reflected in the selection of afterdeath care, or their “final footprint.” Visit for more information. Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public. For more information about this event, call the library at 508-693-3366 or email
