A Green Burial Cemetery

There is a lot of local interest in finding land where we could establish a natural/green burial site in the Yellow Point and Cedar area.

This would satisfy a spiritual need for people who wanted their remains to to rest in the arms of a forest, and an ecological need by protecting an area of forest that might otherwise have been cut down.

To learn more, we invited Cathy Valentine from the Salt Spring Island Natural Cemetery to make an evening presentation, and help us to learn how we could remember a loved-one in a forest that would over time become a towering old-growth forest.

If you are interested, and if you know land that might be suitable, please contact Pamela Walker, 250-245-9155
