Learn about Green Burials
with a team of professionals from West Laurel Hill Cemetery
Thursday, May 20, 3:00 pm
The presentation will be an introduction to the "green" funerary movement and the trends of "green" or natural funeral and burial services. Several speakers will talk about this concept and the services offered at West Laurel Hill.
One of the presenters is Gregg Tepper, West Laurel Hill's lead Horticulturist, who will discuss the development and maintenance of their award-winning "green" burial section, Nature's Sanctuary. This beautiful and peaceful spot is the first cemetery to receive the SITES Gold Certification from the Green Business Certification Inc. Gregg also appeared on another recent Village Zoom program - the Horticultural Tour of Laurel Hill Cemetery in East Falls.
Q & A will follow the presentation.
