I think I want to be buried at the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Hayward, California. Spending eternity in a vineyard sounds like a great idea.
For an additional $1,000, a family can have a loved one buried near the chardonnay vines glistening in the sun, or if they prefer, near the pinot noir vines at the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. The vines were planted 10 years ago as a less expensive and more water-frugal alternative to grass.
The grapevines serve another purpose. “The cemetery doesn’t seem like such a sad and fearsome place when you go there and see the vines,” Bishop Barber said.
