Welcome to Vermont Natural Burial!

Published: October 2, 2021

Hello and thank you for your interest in Vermont Natural Burial.

Natural burial, sometimes referred to as green burial, is a way of burial that uses no chemicals or non-biodegradable materials. This allows all of the nutrients in a human body to return to the soil, nourishing the land in which it is buried. Our cemetery will be the first cemetery in the state dedicated to natural burial.

We hope that our cemetery will nourish the people who visit as well, providing a place for a connection to the natural world around us through hiking trails, ceremony spaces, and outdoor contemplation.

In addition to being environmentally sustainable, natural burial is economically sustainable as the costs are significantly less than conventional burial.

In order to bring the first natural burial cemetery to Vermont we are going to need your help!

We know people are interested in natural burial and we want everyone to know we are here to serve them. Please tell people about Vermont Natural Burial and direct them to our website so that they can join our mailing list and keep up to date with all of the developments at the cemetery.

We look forward to keeping you updated about our progress, answering your questions, and getting to know our supporters.

Thank you,

The Vermont Natural Burial Team
