Host Scott Simon chats with John Wilkerson, a Florida farmer who is creating an eco-burial ground on his property. The land will become a Nature Preserve, returned to its pre-colonization appearance. Burials will be devoid of any non-biodegradable materials and will be significantly cheaper than traditional burials.
