Human Composting

This process uses the principles of nature to transform our loved ones into soil.  Much like the natural cycle that occurs on the forest floor, organic material along with the body decompses and becomes topsoil. 


Soon after someone dies, we lay your loved one in a vessel surrounded by wood chips, alfalfa and straw and the natural breakdown process begins via normal microbial activity. After several weeks of breakdown on the molecular level, nutriet-dense soil is formed. The soil can then be returned to that family, used to enrich forset land, or gardens.


This alternative method of dispostion is available now and soon we will be able to offer this service directly to the public here in Delaware.
