In it's most simplistic form a NBG is a graveyard where the land has a second use as a living, developing and natural nature reserve / woodland. Gone are the marble headstones and concrete surrounds that are common place in other Irish burial grounds, replaced instead by a small simple grave marker and the planting of a native Irish tree or sowing of wildflower seed.
Visitors will be able to walk along the pathways surrounded by nature, spotting wildlife in their newly created habitats. These natural burial grounds will be sacred and natural places. People of all faiths and those without any religion will find a beautiful resting place.
In choosing a natural or green burial you will be creating, conserving and sustaining native Irish woodland / wildflower meadow.
It is a gift that will keep on giving to future generations.
