Foxfield Preserve: A Natural Cemetery
During a recent visit to The Wilderness Center in Wilmot, Ohio, I came across this poster about Foxfield Preserve. Foxfield Preserve is a cemetery, but it quite different from a traditional cemetery. At Foxfield Preserve, the person who has died is not embalmed, and there is no concrete vault. Only natural materials are involved, including clothing made of cotton or wool, and the casket is made of biodegradable material, such as wood. Read more about Foxfield Preserve here.
