  2. 2. Groff Family Funeral Home • Through our research we found the Groff Family Funeral Home and had the pleasure of being able to tour the infamous rooftop water garden in Lancaster city. • In the next slide is a showcase of Lisa Groff and her thoughts and information on the water garden and it came to be on the property of the Groff Family Funeral Home, Inc.

  11. 11. Conclusion • After our findings were completed for this section of the project, our goals were also reached and justified. We sought to find places that greatly benefited from this initiative and its green effects, which we did at both the Groff Family Funeral Home and the Community Mennonite Church of Lancaster. Lisa Groff, owner of the funeral home whom we interviewed stated that she plans to keep the initiative running for as long as she possibly can. While the home will be growing, they are planning on handling the upkeep that their garden needs in the future. • Rain gardens are growing, and are a beneficial initiative to both the environments they are located in and to the individuals who own them.
