The 16th Annual Greensprings Natural Cemetery Preserve Meeting will be held Saturday, June 11 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (rain date Sunday, June 12). Come stroll through the gardens, visit the Memorial Grove, walk to Leopold Overlook, and get the latest news from Greensprings!

Bring a dish to pass and a chair if you can. The business meeting will start at noon with the election of new directors, the annual report of the board of directors and the director and other items on the agenda. All site owners, friends, volunteers and interested individuals are encouraged to attend.

Greensprings Natural Cemetery Preserve is located atop a beautiful hill in Newfield, NY, on 130 acres bounded by two adjacent 8,000 acre forests. It offers a sustainable and natural alternative to conventional burials, without embalming fluids, expensive coffins, concrete vaults and fancy headstones. At Greensprings, burial is straightforward. People are returning to Earth in a way that celebrates how they lived their lives.

Tours will be available after the meeting. Questions? Please call 607.564.7577 or email
