Hybrid Green Burials in Ontario
In our quest to protect land and also provide a vast resting place in the countryside, the Natural Burial Association strives for a stand-alone, or ‘full’ burial ground on land newly created for use as a cemetery. Another type of green burial, known as ‘hybrids’ exist. These are sections created within cemeteries that are designated green burial areas.
Some of Ontario’s hybrid green burials have been created and are maintained by people with a passion for the environment and a desire to create a living memorial that salutes both nature and the dead. Here are the hybrid green burials grounds we believe capture this spirit.
