Our Mission

Connecticut Green Burial Grounds (CGBG) is a Connecticut-based organization dedicated to establishing, promoting, and operating green burial cemeteries. CGBG’s mission is to combine eco-cemeteries and land conservation in an economically viable way that contributes to ecological restoration and conservation.


I would request that my body, in death, be buried and not cremated so that the energy content contained within it gets returned to the earth, so that flora and fauna can dine upon it, just as I have dined upon flora and fauna during my lifetime.
