Some Monday afternoon humor. :)
A green burial consists of no embalment, biodegradable caskets, urns and shrouds and a hand dug burial site. The reasons behind a green burial are simple: returning the deceased to the earth in a way that is both Eco-friendly and spiritually cathartic for their families.
"These days going green is a way of life. And, now, it has also become a popular way to say goodbye."
Happy Spring green burial supporters!

Bloodroot ( Sanguinaria) is our only native poppy (papaveraceae), and its closest relative (not surprisingly) is Eomecon in China. Bloodroot is myrmecochorous: it is spread by ants. Bloodroot seeds have a little fruit that attracts ants. The ants take them home and dispose of the seed itself in the colony refuse pile.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day GBC friends!
