The most frequently asked question about Whispering Hills is “What is a natural Green Cemetery?”
A Natural Cemetery, or “Green” Cemetery, is a cemetery that has a more natural (and environmentally friendly) approach to end of life burials. Embalmed bodies are not allowed. No metal caskets or cement vaults are allowed. Cremains may be buried or scattered after being mixed with a specially formulated soil that will encourage plant growth.
Green burials only use natural materials that are biodegradable in order to allow remains to decompose naturally.
