Tillsonburg Cemetery Scattering Grove
Location: Tillsonburg, ON
The Situation: Like most established cemeteries across the Canadian landscape, Tillsonburg expressed a traditional rural aesthetic, offering in ground full size plots and columbarium niches. As the community grows and evolves, there is an ongoing desire to explore the possibility of introducing additional options for memorialization.
The Solution and Result: Snow Larc worked with the Town to develop a concept for a space that would be both a community garden and a memorial space. The scattering garden incorporates spring bulbs, lush foliage and fragrant plantings, mixing native plant material with flowers you might have found in your grandmother’s garden. Once built, the space will provide one more option for the community to celebrate and remember.
