Conservation Burial Ground
Nestled into more than 1,000 acres of permanently protected wetlands, streams and native hardwood forests, Honey Creek Woodlands is protected by a strong conservation easement and an endowment created from a portion of plot sales. The 70 acres of Monastery land designated for the burial grounds contains hundreds of plant species and abundant wildlife.
NATURAL CEMETERIES AND GREEN BURIAL
