Being buried naturally means nature’s own processes
to do their work, returning your body to the soil completely in only
a matter of years.
Your financial and bodily contribution helps restore the cemetery into
a beautiful native forest or ecosystem suited to the location, which
stay that way in perpetuity.
We offer consulting to Councils for a small
them set up cemeteries. We are uniquely qualified. Since we were
formed in 1999, we have undertaken
the most scientific research ever conducted by one organisation
related to burials.
If you don't want to register just yet, at least
tell your family and friends what you want if you
are dying or deceased, by buying our Living Will.
It's also a small way of making a donation to our
not for profit work.
