Composting human remains in a Riparian environment

June 21, 2021

Theory
if you filled these with sand then the deceased and covered over with more sand and placed the willow basket in a stream then most likely filamentous bacteria would grow around the willow casket.
These would feed aquatic insects and later small fish.
This would be a nature conservancy fundraiser for land trusts with a small annuity for each burial.
More macabre would be tourists coming to see years later the human bones collected in pools downstream this to could generate income for the land trust.
In Europe, people go see Ossuarys after all.

The Filamentous bacteria should produce a ecosystem of small aqautic insects that in turn feed in their nymphts and adult stages bats and birds.
