People may be interested to know about Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge,
MA -- the country's first landscaped cemetery, which is a bird sanctuary
designed by Olmsted. The nation's most famous environmentalists, birders,
and poets are buried there. This of course is a cemetery, but a wonderful
place to know about as incorporating a woodland garden with another use.
There is also a memorial garden for artists in the Catskills somewhere where
there is a wall with names on it of the people whose ashes have been
scattered there. I wouldn't worry about the lack of permanence. People who
want to be returned to the earth generally appreciate the transience..

scatter their in-laws)
