Curious about green burial but don’t know what or who to ask? Join Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum’s Green Burial expert, Gracie Griffin, as she provides a closer look at green burial practices, dispels myths, and explores some exciting and fascinating options available throughout the world. You will learn about the range of “green” funeral and cemetery options available today- like being “planted” in a meadow or amongst the trees, what one can expect when choosing a green service, and the environmental benefits of green burial as compared to cremation and traditional burial.

This 90 minute presentation and Q&A will be held in Hotchkiss Chapel at Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum. Green arrow signs will lead you from our main entrance at 4947 W. Florissant Ave. to the chapel.
