Community support for “green burials” is growing

By

For the past few months a variety of musicians have performed at a relatively new venue called the “Prairie Creek Lodge” in Southeast Alachua County off County Road 234. Funds raised from the acoustic music concerts go towards two non-profit organizations which support land conservation efforts in the county—Alachua Conservation Trust and Green Burials Inc.  Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Chrissy McLarty attended the recent Pierce Pettis concert at the lodge and talked with the concert organizers about the growing toward “green burials” to preserve land.
