Directory of Natural Burial Grounds in Canada
Giving Life Back to the Earth
Natural burial is an environmentally sustainable funeral alternative that embraces the natural cycle of life. Choosing a natural burial when planning our own funeral, or in planning the service of a loved one who has passed away helps to renew our environment while providing friends and family with an endearing, meaningful ritual. Natural Burial is a statement of personal values, and creates a natural legacy for those who live on after we are gone.
Rather than encouraging the unnecessary consumption of resources such as concrete vaults, metal caskets, and chemical preservation... a natural burial creates a living memorial using native trees, shrubs and plants. These living memorials then create natural sanctuaries for friends and family to visit and remember loved ones.
The Natural Burial Co-operative is committed to developing natural burial funeral services, products and memorials, which enhance, protect, and preserve our natural environment. Our members can choose end of life ceremonies and celebrations which;
- Create a lasting natural legacy of life
- Renew and protect valuable natural resources
- Give back to the planet, our community, family and friends
- Reduce the consumption of natural resources.
We need more people who want to help make natural burial possible in all areas of Canada. Get involved in making the vision a reality.
