Eternally Green

Ellen Hills has figured out a perfect use for the 14-acre parcel she owns in South Orrington. She wants to turn it into the state's first "green" cemetery.
A green cemetery is a final resting place where graves are placed randomly throughout woods and fields. The graves are marked only in natural ways, with the planting of a tree or shrub, perhaps, or the placement of a flat, indigenous stone. [Link]
The caskets would be biodegradable, as would their contents: no embalming fluid allowed.
