Perhaps you have heard our minister, Rev. Bill Gupton, talking about natural or “green” burial, and about the positive effects on land conservation and environmental stewardship such traditional practices can have. Looking ahead to the possibility of creating a natural burial ground for Heritage Church members and friends, and possibly for the wider community, Rev. Bill has begun searching for an appropriate parcel or parcels of land in the vicinity (that is, the general Tri-State area) – land that would serve well both as a conservation land trust, and a natural burial sanctuary.
Do you have some acreage you’d consider donating to the church? Do you know of someone who has land for sale, or who is interested in environmental stewardship, who might want to protect their land from development? Have you heard about or run across a nice-looking piece of land that is for sale within, say, a 25-mile radius of church?
If so, or if you want to be part of a team that is forming to find such land and begin the process of creating a protected land trust for “green burial” and ecological preservation, please contact Rev. Bill at firstname.lastname@example.org or 513-633-8703.
