I have just joined the Natural Death Centre – it’s a great source of information on all sorts of issues around natural burial grounds, green funerals and so on.
I think it’s very important to recognize just how medicalized death has become in recent years and how environmentally damaging funerals can be. But there are other ways to approach this.
Of course, here in Dundee, we are very lucky to have a beautiful natural burial ground just outside Kellas. CairnBrae is a magical place and offers a tranquil alternative to “traditional” cemetery burials or crematorium services.
Please contact me if you would like to discuss these sorts of alternative approaches to funerals.
