Although Honey Creek Woodlands is on land owned by the monastery, it is an ecumenical burial site where people of any faith (or none) may be buried. For someone like me, though, it’s ideal: to be buried on monastery land, in an ecologically responsible way. Granted, dying and getting buried are at the very bottom of my to-do list, but it’s comforting to know that when I finally kick the bucket, I’ll have someplace so wonderful to go where I can push up the daisies (all organic, of course) in style.
