Maryland Green Burial                                
MDG Requirements


 Our Beliefs 
These are Maryland Green Burial beliefs and are not reflective of the overall way other cemeteries may or may not operate a natural burial section.

1.   The burial, products, and processes are all natural.  That is, that they do not involve any chemical processes, inclusive of preservation of the body, stain or paint for the encasement, or any other non natural product.

2.   That the process be devoid of any harmful element that could negatively affect the environment or any part of the Chesapeake Bay or it’s tributaries.

3.   That the area utilized by the natural burial is both well maintained and utilizes all native species of plantings and ground cover.

4.  That in a natural earth burial the remains are cared for so that they are allowed to naturally break down through the normal practice in place by nature.
