Two Land Trust Partners

Our desire is to establish a green cemetery that does not allow embalming chemicals, hardwood or metal caskets, concrete liners or vaults, and which is open to all Massachusetts residents. One strategy for the establishment of this cemetery is to partner with land trusts in Massachusetts.

Kestrel Land Trust

Green Burial Massachusetts connected with Kestrel Land Trust in 2017. We re-established a relationship that began in 2009 when they first asked us to submit an article in their newsletter about green burial. We're working with Kestrel to identify land suitable for a green cemetery in their region of Western Massachusetts.

Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust

Green Burial Massachusetts has been a long-time partner with Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust in looking for land in their regions of North Central and Western Massachusetts. We've researched many parcels together in search of the right landing spot.
