Los Angeles, CA, May 15, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- On May 6th, 2017, in Quebec, Canada, the first Bios Urn was planted in a special garden just for Bios Urn biodegradable urns. A cemetery in Quebec has recently teamed up with a local Bios Urn distributor, to provide a new experience for those seeking to use a Bios Urn, and plant it in a special outdoor garden. This garden has been created especially for planting cremated remains with Bios Urns that grow trees.
Cimitière Catholique Granby located in Granby, Quebec has devoted a portion of its land specifically to be used for the planting of a Bios Urn. The new garden is called Jardin d’arbre de vie in French, which roughly translates to "The tree of life garden." This Bios garden is welcome to people of all faiths, and from all religions.
Families and individuals will be invited to participate in a tree of life planting ceremony and are able to also plant the seeds or seedlings themselves. Flowers, shrubs, trees, and even fruit trees are available to be used. Over 20 native tree varieties are currently available. All of the species chosen are compatible with the local environment and are native tree species. The Bios Urns will be planted during optimal planting seasons, namely from May to October.
The cemetery has plans to expand, and is truly going green ensuring that all materials planted in the cemetery are natural and biodegradable – so as to respect the environment as much as possible. A gazebo is currently being planned to hold celebrations of life as well.
Customization will also be an added feature, and it is possible to add name plaques or leather belts for the trees, for those who desire more customization. On top of these services, a dedicated team of tree growers will check on the trees periodically to ensure they are growing healthily – as a guarantee to families and individuals who have opted to plant in the garden.
Currently other Bios Urn distributors have plans of opening more "tree of life" gardens.
