How You Can Help


We are an all-volunteer organization. Your donation allows us to pursue our mission of educating the public about green burial through presentations, consultations, printed material, and our website. Your donation will also help with legal fees and other costs of land acquisition when the time comes. Donate securely here.

Crowdsourced cemetery database

Share your knowledge. Do you know of a cemetery that allows green burial that is not in our database? Do you have other information about green burial in Massachusetts that you think would be of interest to us? Write to us and share what you know.


We are in search of a parcel of land that is a good fit for a cemetery. A gift or sale of the right piece of land could be hugely beneficial to both the landowner and GBM. If you think your parcel, or one you know of, might be suitable for a conservation cemetery, we’d be glad to talk to you about what you’ve got and what we’re looking for. Some combination of sale and gift may be possible. Contact us to share potential land opportunities.


We are in need of volunteers to help us with our work. Interested in doing research to help us identify more cemeteries that allow green burial? Enjoy educating the public? Have a talent for social media outreach? Write to us at and tell us what you would like to do.
