In 2015, Jeff and Heidi crafted a vision for a natural burial ground and set about researching and planning for the Piedmont’s first conservation cemetery. They visited over 35 natural and conservation cemeteries around the country and helped found the Conservation Burial Alliance, a national group dedicated to supporting the protection, restoration, and sustainable management of conservation land that incorporates natural burial cemeteries. In 2019, they were joined by Farm Church colleagues who helped introduce the project to friends in their community. In 2020, the cemetery project moved online with Zoom listening sessions and presentations to small groups. Today, we are pleased to introduce:
A Conservation Cemetery for the Piedmont "Where nature is enough"
