Larkspur Conservation at Taylor Hollow

Larkspur Conservation at Taylor Hollow(slated to open spring 2018) will be Tennessee’s first conservation burial ground. It’s rolling hills and meadows are located along Bear Carr Road in Westmoreland, 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 January of 2018 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, native plant revegetation, mapping/GPS, conservation endowment 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.
