Heartwood Preserve’s Burial Crew is a group of very special people who assist with the natural burials that take place at Heartwood Preserve. This is a unique opportunity to help families have a meaningful closure to their loved one’s life.
The Burial Crew primarily helps to carry the deceased from the hearse (or other vehicle) to the grave, set the body over the grave, lower the body by hand (with ropes) into the grave, and finish closing the grave, after the family has participated as much as they want.
The Crew & ‘Helpers’ may also help with other needed tasks like directing parking, greeting, water, set-up & cleanup of burial area.
If this sounds like something YOU
may be interested in doing,
please join our current Crew
& Heartwood staff
for our next Training Night,
