exploring green burials 

What if our last act could be a gift to the planet? Determined that his final resting place will benefit the earth, musician, psychiatrist, and folk dancer, Clark Wang, prepares for his own green burial while battling lymphoma. The spirited Clark and his partner Jane, boldly facing his mortality, embrace the planning of a spiritually meaningful funeral and join with a compassionate local cemetarian to use green burial to save a North Carolina woods from being clear-cut. 

A project of the Philander Chase Conservancy, Kenyon College’s land trust, the preserve offers a natural burial option on twenty-three acres of restored prairies and woodlands.

Located in central Knox County, approximate fifty miles northeast of Columbus, the preserve is located at 10620 Quarry Chapel Road, one mile northeast of the Village of Gambier and the campus of Kenyon College.

Death is not the greatest loss in life.  The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.  ~Norman Cousins
