The Meadow Green Burial Ground

Moles Farewell Tributes is honored to introduce The Meadow, the first natural burial ground in Western Washington to be certified by the Green Burial Council. The Meadow Natural Burial Ground at Moles Greenacres Memorial Park allows families the option to lay loved ones to rest in a serene and natural environment.

Natural burial, commonly referred to as “green burial,” uses:

Sustainable burial methods
100% biodegradable materials
Earth-friendly excavation and technology

Everything placed in the ground at The Meadow is nontoxic and biodegradable, allowing it to return to the earth. In addition, each burial contributes to the ongoing restoration of The Meadow as a thriving, native ecosystem. As part of the restoration efforts, each family is given the option to have a guild of three native plants, a tree, shrub, or ground cover, planted in the memory of their loved one. Also available for memorialization are boulder-sized, engraved river rocks.

These grounds are kept as a natural area. Maintenance is minimal and does not involve irrigation, fertilizers, regular mowing, or pruning. In addition, integrated pest management is used to manage invasive species. The Meadow is one example of Moles’ value of community stewardship. We are committed to acting responsibly with what has been entrusted to us.

All farewell events conducted at The Meadows are backed by our exclusive Moles Farewell Satisfaction Guarantee.
