Embracing Natural Burial
“Dying to Bloom” started as a monthly radio show hosted by Kerry Potter-Kotecki who was Director of Business Development at a local radio station. The shows focused on providing information and discussion on our funeral burial choices, how they impact the environment and our wallet. They are available on Kerry’s “Dying to Bloom” YouTube channel.
Green Cemeteries in the New York Area
Green Cemeteries offer minimal environmental impact and conserve natural resources. We do have some wonderful hybrid green cemeteries in the New York/ New Jersey area as well as Greensprings (http://www.naturalburial.orgin) in Newfield, NY. If you’re interested in bringing a land conservation green cemetery to the Rockland County area, please consider donating to the “Green Cemetery Fund” through the Rockland Community Foundation – www.rocklandgives.org
“There is no such thing as death. In nature nothing dies. From each sad remnant of decay, some forms of life arise so shall his life be taken away before he knoweth that he hath it.” Charles Mackay – Member of the National Funeral Consumers Alliance
