Larkspur Conservation was birthed at St. Augustine's in 2013 to conserve land through a revival of traditional burial practice. It is now a separate 501(c)3 organization--most of the board members are active in the St. A's community. This organization is dedicated to the stewardship of our natural environment through earth friendly burial practices. Natural burial is the practice of burying deceased remains directly into the ground without the use of such contaminating materials as metal caskets, concrete vaults, and embalming chemicals. Larkspur has established a conservation cemetery, placing 112 acres under a conservation easement. A portion of the burial costs will be used to purchase and preserve additional undeveloped land.
