Volunteer Opportunity at Chalmette National Cemetery!

The National Park Service, the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, with sponsorship from D/2 Biological Solution, is sponsoring this year’s Volunteer Month (March 7–April 1, 2016) at Chalmette National Cemetery in Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve.  This special National Cemetery is located less than an hour outside of New Orleans.  It contains headstones of American soldiers from the Civil War, Spanish American Wars, and the World Wars.

Volunteers are needed to document, realign, and clean headstones in the cemetery.  Hands-on training of all volunteers in gravestone restoration and preservation including cleaning and leveling will take place on site.  In fact, Cemetery Preservation Supply LLC and Texas Cemetery Restoration LLC craftsperson, James “Rusty” Brenner, will be onsite volunteering and training volunteers from March 14, 2016 through March 19, 2016 – we would love to see you out there!

D/2 Biological Solution

D/2 Biological Solution

As a monument conservator for over fifteen years, I have used many monument cleaners over the years.  However, since 2007 I have exclusively used D/2 Biological Solution in my monument restoration business, Texas Cemetery Restoration LLC.  Many people have asked me where they can purchase D/2 Biological Solution and until now it was not generally available to individuals or small cemeteries.  I am pleased to now make D/2 Biological Solutions available for purchase in 5 gallon or 1 gallon sizes.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me by phone or email with any questions.
