Annual Meeting and Call for Contributions

The Annual Meeting of Greensprings Natural Cemetery will be held Saturday, June 16 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine, at the cemetery. A light lunch will be provided - if everyone brings a dish to pass! Please e-mail Lynn Leopold at lynnbird58@gmail.com to let her know what you would like to bring (salad, main dish, dessert, etc.) so we don't end up with all the same thing.  Drinks will be provided. Of special note is recognition of Joel Rabinowitz, former executive director of Greensprings, who is retiring from the Board of Trustees following the maximum six years of service. Elections of new board members will be conducted. All lot holders, staff, volunteers and friends (especially of Joel!) are encouraged to attend. For more information on Greensprings and directions, please visit naturalburial.org.


Traditionally we have reminded Greensprings' friends at annual meeting time that contributions are essential to do more than the minimal to operate the cemetery and especially to manage the grounds as a nature preserve. We had to take over $10,000 from reserves to make the final payment on the 30-care Gould property that we acquired a few years ago. We will need additional monies to pay for 75 native trees and shrubs as part of our pollinator plan. Our cottage headquarters and storage buildings are in need of repair and new shingles. To make a contribution or arrange a bequest please visit our web site at http://www.naturalburial.org/ or Goggle Greensprings Natural Cemetery. And, of course, contributions will be gratefully accepted at the Annual Meeting.

There's lots happening at Greensprings! Attend the Annual Meeting to learn more about the exciting activities made possible by all of you.
