becoming food for somebody

Прочитала статью: Our First Public Parks: The Forgotten History of Cemeteries.

В конце автора книги о кладбищах спрашивают, как бы он сам хотел быть похороненным.

"I'm in the process right now of writing my first will, and I've included language that I want a natural burial, in Oregon, where I'm from. The idea of cremation is somehow a little violent and also, I like the idea of being connected back to the earth—becoming food for somebody or something, and also being connected to a place, just for a generation or two. I'm not vain enough to think people will come back and visit for generations. I'd like to have a place where my children and their children could commune, but it doesn't need to go on for more than a generation or two".
