Friends of Green Hill Cemetery
For the Living!
Friends of Green Hill Cemetery (FoGHC) is a small, all-volunteer group 
formed in 2009 to offer historical tours, botanical tours, perform a wee bit of weeding, raise funds for cemetery enhancements, and encourage respectful respite for all who visit Green Hill Cemetery in Greensboro, North Carolina

Green Hill Cemetery is Greensboro's oldest actively-used public cemetery, established around 1877, with many earlier burials.  Its 51-acres and ~19,000 burial plots are actively managed by the City of Greensboro Parks & Recreation Department

Friends of Green Hill Cemetery (FoGHC) volunteers actively
encourage the living to visit this lovely acerage for: 
families healing, neighborhood walkers, lunchtime strollers,
genealogists, plein aire artists, bench sitters, book readers, practicing bagpipers, 
​tree and shrub enthusiasts, birders, botanists, and anyone who enjoys
​picnicing in the welcoming Gathering Area.

FYI:  In 2020 hundreds of Green Hill trees and shrubs are being labeled and numbered by volunteers, then surveyed by City staff, providing precise GPS locations.  These efforts help us promote botanical and educational interest in Green Hill
PLEASE do not remove any labels or numbers.  They facilitate GPS surveying.
