Gourd Urn

Each gourd is completely natural and unique. The Adult and Mini sized Gourd Urns include a 25g cast bronze Memorial Pendant that hangs from the ornamental drift-wood on top of each urn by a simple leather cord. Grown and crafted in the desert-southwest of the United States, each is handmade by local artists. The bronze Memorial Pendant features the “Tree of Life” symbol and can be engraved on the back.

Additional matching “Tree of Life” Memorial Medallions are available and sold separately. Medallions will oxidize naturally and change color over time. Click Here to read more about Memorial Medallions.

We believe that, especially when a person valued sustainability during their life, it is important to have the option for a greener end-of-life ritual.

Gift tree tubesPassages suggests offering memorial trees as the perfect complement to any biodegradable urn or scattering tube. Whether it is planted where the cremated remains of a loved one are scattered or buried, or in your garden at home, the trees provide a lasting and living memorial. As part of The Natural Choice® Memorial Tree Program, a numbered certificate can be used to redeem a 12” tree sapling that is appropriate to your climate and guaranteed for a year to grow. Read more about the program and how it works.

Simply complete the form on our website, including your certificate number, and a tree will be mailed to the address you provide. Memorial trees are a wonderful way to remember a loved one that, if you choose, can grow from the same soil in which a loved one’s remains were laid to rest. Because families receive a sapling instead of seeds, the hardest part of the tree’s life has passed and there is no worry of a seed not germinating.

Each Passages adult casket comes with a free Memorial Tree Certificate that can be redeemed for a live tree.

Memorial Petals are also available and are a perfect addition to a burial at sea or other ceremonies.
