The speaker, Donna Larsen,
Green burial markers are mostly unobtrusive -- a magnetic peg that can be kept track of with a GPS. Or a natural rock. Some Green Burial locations have a place for plaques. But the actual burial site looks natural. People can walk along paths in the woods right beside the burial grounds. Donna said her best memories of her father are all in the wilderness, so she wanted to be able to place him in wilderness. Green Burial is now one more option, along with cremation, sky burial, and graveyards.
I was all set on cremation until I attended this meeting. Green Burial now has a lot more appeal, but I don't know where I'll be when I die. I might not be near a green burial location. Fortunately, tax breaks for land preservation mean that more and more green burial sites are becoming available.
