Abstract:

American cemeteries demand our attention and respect. These unique landscapes seem naturally resistant to change. Leading a community toward sustainable practices in existing cemeteries may be the biggest challenge for public works officials yet. Regardless of your age when you die the people left behind will be faced with dealing with your remains. Can public works officials develop and manage a sustainable cemetery to accommodate our infinite cycle of death?
