We at MVGC have been moved many times when we hear of a friend that has been financially stressed because of a death in the family. It was time for us to stand up and help in this matter. We have a ranch with lots of room for a cemetery. After dealing with the state and county we are now a recorded cemetery. Our goal is to supply a place in the environmentally sound area where people can bring their loved ones and put them to rest. They will be placed in a biodegradable container and allowed to return back to the earth with no embalming. In return the body will nourish and grow many plants and trees. The family can place a natural rock as a headstone. There will be nothing man made in this area. If the family wishes they may be part of the burial. There is much healing in knowing that they did their part in helping.
It' the natural way God intended for our bodies, from dust to dust. Traditional burials can be a big financial hardship on the families left behind. Green burials can offer an alternate solution to a time that doesn't need the additional stress of thousands and thousands of dollars of expense.
When should I buy the plot? Anytime after age 40. Arrange your own funeral and take the burden away from your children. Let them know your wishes. Talk to them. We never know the time or day. If you pay now it will save your children a financial hardship.
We can assign you one or you can pick one.
Natural stone is available for a headstone. Also, you can plant a tree or green shrub to have a living monument to your loved one.
