We commit his body to the ground; earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust….


‘Earth, that nourished thee, shall claim
Thy growth, to be resolved to earth again.’

When I die I want a to be buried into a biodegradable burial pod. In the pod the body is first encapsulated into a fetal position in order to fit inside it. The pod looks like an earthy piece of art, but really it’s a biodegradable “casket.” Once the burial pod is buried deep underground a tree seed or a young tree is placed directly above it. The burial pod that literally turns a person’s remains into nutrients for a beautiful tree growing directly up above. Instead of a cemetery, these parks will be referred to as “memory forests.”
