More families are choosing natural burial when it comes time to say good bye to a loved one. It is an environmentally friendly option and is often less expensive. Evergreen Memorial Trust’s Blair Graninger says natural burials often have more family involvement and offer a more intimate experience. For example families sometime choose to carry their loved one to the grave site.
Evergreen Memorial Trust has one of the only natural cemeteries in Virginia. Forest Rest in Boones Mill, is a wooded cemetery. There are no vaults, people are buried in a shroud, which often has special meaning to the family and the loved one, or they are buried in a bio-degradable pine box or wicker basket. It is the only place in southwest Virginia for a natural burial without embalming.
