MEMORIAL AND COMMEMORATIVE GIFTS

CREATE A MEMORIAL OR COMMEMORATE AN OCCASION
A creative way to leave a lasting memorial to a loved one is to donate funds for an object, such as a bench, sculpture or other garden feature, in their name. Some also choose to name an object or a tree to commemorate a meaningful occasion, such as an anniversary. Your chosen bench, tree, or sculpture would bear a permanent plaque and be maintained for the enjoyment of all visitors.

INTERMENT AT TOWER HILL
Although Tower Hill is a garden of great beauty and tranquility, it is not, in the classic sense, a consecrated cemetery. Yet, since the garden first opened, members and friends have expressed their desire that Tower Hill be the final resting place of cremated remains (cremains) of family members and/or companion animals. The most requested preference is to place cremains in contact with the roots of trees or other plants. The belief—and reality— is that cremains contribute to the health of the soil and the added nutrients are, in part, absorbed by the plant, generating a “living tribute” to the departed.
