GREEN FUNERALS

One of the greatest gifts my parents left me was a small share in a heritage block in the Flinders Ranges. It has no material value–it cannot be ‘developed’ or sold for profit–but it is a true treasure.

Many of us have spent our lives trying to create a life that doesn’t harm our environment, and we want to make sure our final acts and choices reflect that too. Some of those choices are obvious, for example, the materials used for the coffin. But you want a service that reflects your life’s philosophy too.

As someone who became a vegetarian in her twenties, marched in anti-nuclear rallies led by Peter Garrett, and finds peace in the smell of a lemon-scented gum, I know that a green funeral goes even deeper than the tangible choices that people will see. I craft ceremonies that truly reflect your life’s philosophy.
