Greensprings Natural Cemetery Preserve covers 130 acres of rolling meadows, spotted with evergreen groves, fringed by 10 acres of woods, and surrounded by 8,000 acres of protected forests. Stewardship is at the heart of everything they do, including adopting practices that help maintain healthy open meadows where meadowlarks, northern harriers, bobolinks, and other birds can thrive. Greensprings offers a sustainable, natural alternative to conventional burials, without embalming fluids, high-cost coffins, concrete vaults and fancy gravestones. At Greensprings, burial is simple. People make their return to the Earth in a way that celebrates how they lived their lives.
Greensprings is so much more than just doing the right thing. Environmentally, it fulfills the traditional need of human beings to do everything they possibly can for their loved ones, even in death.”
