Feeling Stressed? Enroll in Invasive Plant Obliteration Therapy!

Help us on June 6 & June 13th @ 11:30AM in creating an easy care outdoor labyrinth.  Please save large cardboard boxes and newspapers so we can use it for weed blocker.  Materials can be stored in the gray shed on the playground.

The UUCA labyrinth is a living work in progress.  Original funding was raised by Full Circle and direct donations to this church for this project.  If you are interested in helping with it’s maintenance or workshops or would like to find out more, please contact Kay.

Weed Whacked Labyrinth in Suburban Lawn

May 17th, 2009

This labyrinth was created by taking a weed whacker to my lawn.  It’s about 25-30 feet across.  This was done in my back yard, but it may crop up in my front yard one day.  If you’re lawn is big enough, you could just put your lawn mower at a lower setting and mow the paths.  Or go for a 4 circuit path.  This is a great way to temporarily test a design before installing more permanent or expensive materials.

3-D Labyrinth on a Sphere

April 30th, 2009

I wish I remembered which book I found this in, or I would list the title.  This is a classical 7-circuit labyrinth on a tennis ball.  Start with the seed pattern in the center.  The second photo shows how you can measure out some of the lines horizontally so you can get the lines the same width apart.   The last part of the seed pattern is the entrance, that ended up being a bit large.  So I drew a daisy and arrow to show where to enter the labyrinth.

Office Paper Labyrinth

April 17th, 2009

This labyrinth is located behind the church, behind the parking lot.  This picture was snapped around sunset.  There was no outdoor lighting for evening, which is why this picture is so blurry.  Below is a more detailed photo taken with the flash on my camera.
