Somebody looked into this once for Sharingwood but the overhead and
paperwork and such required were much more than we were willing to do. These
are state laws so each state decides how easy or hard to make family burial.

Subject: [C-L]_ Green burial

Milagro Cohousing located at Tucson, Arizona had a death of a member on
12/26/08.  Ruth requested a green burial. Milagro did not have a burial site
registered so Ruth was buried at another small  community in Tucson.  The
developer of the community was a very good friend of Ruth's so she
registered a burial spot at her community.  Milagro now is in the process of
exploring establishing a green burial site on our property. 
Are there any green burial sites at other cohousing communities?  If so,
would you be willing to share your experiences?
thank you,
