Larkspur Conservation at Taylor Hollow

Larkspur Conservation at Taylor Hollow will be Tennessee’s first conservation cemetery. The organization expects a spring 2018 opening.  It’s rolling hills and meadows are adjacent to Taylor Hollow State Natural Area in Sumner County, Tennessee.  Taylor Hollow is a 172 acre mixed mesophytic forest and one of the most biodiverse areas in the south.  Larkspur Conservation will create a nature preserve on the former farm of Dr. Russell Ward using a portion of the property for low-impact, environmentally friendly natural burial. The 112 acre property will be protected forever by a conservation easement.  The Ward family views this project as a living memorial to their father and a perfect way to forever save the land he loved. LC at Taylor Hollow is currently in the developmental stages.   We will begin planning ahead with families in late 2017 and will begin burials as early as the Spring of 2018. We expect our beginning price for burial rights to be $3900 (including, opening and closing of the grave, memorial stone and engraving, native plant revegetation, mapping/GPS and perpetual care.) If you would like to be contacted when we reach the family planning phase simply email us and we will add your name and contact info to our planning records.
