Sharing the Experience of A Home Funeral Practicum

Jeremy Burrill, who makes caskets for people and owns the Fiddlehead Casket Company recently attended a Home Funeral Practicum.  He describes his experience in his blog post about how a diverse group of people came together to learn to better care for people in the days after their death.

Here is the link – a very enjoyable and informative article.


Home Funeral Practicum on Gabriola Island BC

Hi everyone, this is long overdue!

In February, 2017, I attended Don Morris’ Home Funeral Practice workshop on Gabriola Island. The weekend was so inspiring that as result we formed the Gabriola Community Death Care Collective. We found the workshop informative and very moving. Our collective consists of Michele, Leah, Christine and myself, Elfi. We are in the seeding time of our endeavour and beginning to connect with other community organizations and hoping that our work will blossom. We appreciate your work very much.

More to come!
