This spring, as we began construction for our new bathrooms, we removed the Labyrinth. Find a new one in the Foothills Grove near the Vegetable Garden and the Lewis and Clark Garden. A Labyrinth is a flat surface containing an intricately designed pathway. It has one path that moves back and forth or from side to side until you reach the center and then back out again to where you began. It is often used as a form of meditation. We were able to install a new Labyrinth thanks to donors Lisa and Norm Schlachter. Throughout the fall, the lower section of Foothills Grove was regraded and new stone retaining walls installed. The design has a gravel base, and pathways are defined by sandstone bricks. Our new Labyrinth is a work of art in the landscape. Make sure to visit early spring to see all of the wonderful updates to our Garden!
