About The Good Earth, LLC - Shelia Champion:

I own and operate the first and only fully green burial ground in the State of Alabama. As owner of The Good Earth, LLC, I have sued the State of Alabama to do away with the law requiring only Alabama Licensed Funeral Directors be allowed to sell caskets, and with the help of The Institute for Justice WE WON!!!  I'm also working to change other restrictive funeral laws in Alabama.

I am also a home funeral guide and am working to form a volunteer network of people to help those wanting to have a home funeral.

What brings you to Death Cafe?

Bringing the discussion of death out in the open. People are more comfortable talking about any other subject which makes no sense as it is the one thing we all have in common.

What would you like your legacy to be?

Changing restrictive funeral industry laws in the State of Alabama making it a more death friendly state.

Educating people about their rights at the time of death.

Having Alabama's first truly green burial ground.

Thoughts for sharing:

Having had a phobia about death up until my mother died and I was 50 yrs old, I also had a fascination with death. Learning has lessened the fear and has enabled me to help others.

Great article, thanks again to Lucy Berry the author. Lucy has covered many of my events. Thanks to all that attended. I was surprised to have 16 attendees. Some were able to stay longer than others. There was no lack of conversation which varied from personal experiences to funeral costs ...
