Loving Earth Memorial Gardens

Barnum, MN

Only a short drive from Lake Superior and the Twin Ports of Duluth, Minnesota, and Superior, Wisconsin, and not far from the Twin Cities metro area, Loving Earth Memorial Gardens rests on twenty acres of pristine natural prairie that neighbor hundreds of acres of protected old-growth state forest. The area is laced with multiple crystal clear trout streams and is inhabited by abundant wildlife, including wolves, bear, fox and countless bird species such as grouse, pheasant, hawks and eagles. It is truly, without a doubt, a nature-lovers’ paradise.

The cemetery sits in what was, and still is in many ways, Ojibwe country. Many of the locals still devoutly practice the old Ojibwe ways of their ancestors, making this location the perfect fit for the ancient traditions practiced in a natural cemetery. 


While the winters can be long in this part of the world, Minnesotans don’t mind. They embrace the cold as just a part of life and, in fact, make it a way of life. They’ve mastered the art of winter recreation in their snow-covered piece of paradise, which keeps them plenty busy until they are rewarded with a near-perfect spring, gentle summer and cool, vibrant fall. 

When the snow melts, the local rivers and streams, such as the mighty St. Louis River, swell into raging rapids, and the roar of dozens of pristine waterfalls echo throughout the forest. These treasures are only a few of the benefits of being in this incredible place. Your loved ones will appreciate your having chosen Loving Earth as your final resting place and will surely visit again and again.
