Active cemeteries as testing grounds Passive cemeteries as litmus tests

The active cemeteries have space for expansion and are proposed to be centers of distribution of resilient species throughout the city. This is implemented by integrating the program of a nursery within them to grow diverse plant types based on the soil conditions. The passive cemeteries, with its limited land adopt the role of litmus test sites informing the development of species and further modifications This not only ensures the increase in green cover but also allows JCPZ, who maintain the parks and the cemeteries to develop resiliency throughout its species.
