We Assist Families with Green Burial
Green burial, or natural burial, is growing in popularity and becoming the preferred option for many families in Alachua County. It uses no chemicals, no non-biodegradable substances, and does not require purchase of a grave vault or liner. Green burial takes us back to the natural human funeral rite of simply placing a loved one in the ground. It fulfills the last wishes of any nature-lover and allows the family to participate in the process. Milam Funeral & Cremation Services will work closely with Prairie Creek Conservation Cemetery to create this memorable and serene experience.
Please view Prairie Creek’s website for more information: www.prairiecreekconservationcemetery.org
Your loved one may be shrouded or placed in a biodegradable casket.
