Alice’s Garden Partnership
LABYRINTH IN ALICE’S GARDEN
The work is done, the wait is over and the fun is just beginning. The labyrinth in Alice’s Garden is complete! As many of you know, Lake Park Lutheran has been partnering with Venice Williams (Alice’s Garden/Center for Resilient Cities) and Jeff Rainwater (Center for Resilient Cities) to create a labyrinth and healing garden in Alice’s Garden, a community garden at 20th and Garfield in the heart of the city of Milwaukee, as part of our 100th Anniversary service project initiative. Many Lake Parkers, along with members of several other diverse community groups, donated supplies, dug in the dirt, hauled rocks and/or offerred moral support throughout this process to make this project a reality, and now it’s time to walk the labyrinth and see what it’s all about.
If you’d like more information walking the labyrinth, there is a brochure entitled “How to Walk a Labyrinth” at the church.
