Green Burial, via Zoom

September 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

UPSTATE CHAPTER’S ANNUAL MEETING

Our annual meeting this year will be a virtual meeting, via Zoom, as we did in June and July.

Be sure you are signed up to receive the “Tiny Letter” email announcements (you can do this on the home page of SCNPS.org) so you can receive an invitation to join the zoom meeting.

The meeting will begin with updates on the year’s activities from our president, Virginia Meador. Following that will be a very interesting presentation by Dr. Billy Campbell of Westminster, SC —

 

Green Burial

Imagine a combination cemetery/nature preserve filled with wildflowers, threaded with streams, interjected with forest….

No toxic embalming fluids or metal vaults are permitted.

Coffins are made of biodegradable wood or reinforced cardboard.

Bodies are not embalmed, so they decompose quickly, surrendering their nourishment to the earth….

Sound far-fetched? the place exists — nearby.

 

Dr. Billy Campbell

will tell us about the 78 acre preserve
at Memorial Ecosystem at Ramsey Creek
— the first green cemetery in the country —
and the rich flora associated with it.

 

Sign in at 6:30 to spend some time socializing before the meeting, which will begin at 7:00.
