Why Become a HHGBS Member?
By becoming a Burial Society member you’re helping to green after-death practices in Haliburton County while passing on your commitment to environmental stewardship to future generations, at the same time. Membership in the HHGBS helps extend your support for more ecologically sustainable after-death practices while you are alive into a legacy that will keep on living after you have passed on.
By pooling our resources, the members, volunteers and Board members of the Haliburton Highlands Green Burial Society can encourage the adoption of greener options to conventional high carbon burial and cremation practices, thereby reducing our individual and collective ecological footprints.
Who Should Join? All those desiring increased green and winter burial options in Haliburton, anyone interested in the cultural and environmental future of their communities, as well as those wanting access to green end-of-life planning, educational and resource material.
The cost of membership is $20 per year and you can join by sending an email request to the HHGBS Secretary, Shirley Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org. The membership year runs from January 1st – December 31stand we’re encouraging all current members to renew their memberships for 2021, as soon as possible. You can do that by sending a cheque for $20 made out to the Haliburton Highlands Green Burial Society (HHGBS) to Shirley Moore HHGBS Secretary, 1193 Braeloch Rd., Algonquin Highlands, Ont., K0M1J2
