As conservation specialists, LANDMATTERS is uniquely positioned to assist landowners and land trusts in conserving land while also providing green space for burial that is in keeping with conservation best practices. Heidi and Jeff offer extensive experience as conservationists concerned with conventional funeral impacts on land, specialists for community groups and land trusts considering their own conservation burial grounds, and as facilitators between land donors and the entities involved.
Conservation Burial Grounds are as unique as the landscapes they represent.
We can help with:
Site evaluations and feasibility studies
Land acquisition and fundraising strategies
Implementation strategies for green burial and/or conservation burial projects
Design guidelines and standards for conservation burial grounds
Best practices that emphasize a property's indigenous features
Budgetary considerations for conservation burial grounds management
Facilitation of conversations among land trust staff, board members and community members
