Carolina Memorial Sanctuary is a conservation and green cemetery that provides a peaceful and contemplative environment in which to lay loved ones to rest. The Sanctuary is available for the natural burial of humans, our pet companions, or cremated remains at a cost of one-half to one-third of contemporary burials. Carolina Memorial Sanctuary is a living memorial sanctuary – changing with the seasons, flowing with fresh water and vibrant with ecological activity offering a powerful testament to your life or that of your loved one. Not only does the Sanctuary provide an important service to our community, it also protects the land against future development in a way that benefits the ecosystem.

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
