Memorial Trees & Beehives

Our 2022 Beehive Season was a Sweet Success!

We are pleased to share that our 2022 season was a success, with more than 20 families participating and sharing in the honey harvest. We look forward to next year… please¬†email us to reserve your hive for Spring 2023!

We offer two levels of sponsorship; both include a guaranteed amount of honey and personalized honey labels. Custom bee-shaped memorial plaques available for an additional fee.

Sponsorship pricing available early 2023.


All Are Welcome to Participate

A common question we get is about the cemetery aspect- Folks do not need to have a loved one laid to rest in our cemetery to be a Beehive Sponsor. Everyone is welcome, and the memorial plaque can be placed here or brought home for your own garden.

What is a Memorial Tree?

Trees are symbolic of the cyclical nature of life. As the seasons change, so do our relationships with those we love. There is no change more personal than the loss of a loved one; it marks the end of their earthly journey, and your new relationship with the memory of them. Planting a tree is a beautiful and lasting way to establish significance of a life lived, and to acknowledge the impact of someone on your life.

At Heritage Gardens, we have a range of options for memorial plantings. Our Willow Garden allows for flowering shrubs and bushes of the family’s choice to be planted with cremated remains. Following a committal service, the remains are either scattered on the surface of the garden, or the hole for a tree is prepared and the ashes mixed in with the soil. Families may participate in the planting or our staff will take care of everything while they observe.
