What is Green Burial? Free Info Session

October 17, 2023 @ 2:00 pm 3:30 pm

Learn about Green Burial at Our Free Info Session

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 discusses new trends and options in death-care.

You will learn about the range of “green” funeral and cemetery options available today, like being “planted” in a meadow, what one can expect when choosing a green service, and the environmental benefits of green burial as compared to cremation and traditional burial.

This 1.5 hour presentation, with a Q&A to follow, will be held in Hotchkiss Chapel at Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum. Enter the main gates of the cemetery at 4947 W. Florissant Ave. then follow the street signs to the Hotchkiss Chapel.
