Eldorado Community Creates Canned Food Labyrinth of Giving

Labyrinth Resource Group members and their 405-can Labyrinth of Giving!

     On Saturday, Nov 16th, the Labyrinth Resource Group hosted a Canned Food Drive at the Eldorado Supermarket…..with a twist!  As shoppers brought their donations from the store, they placed them on the patio along the lines of a chalk labyrinth.   In the end, 405 cans created a beautiful canned food labyrinth!   The donations were boxed and delivered to Bienvenidos Food Pantry to help feed hungry souls in Santa Fe.  Our thanks to Eldorado Supermarket and Bienvenidos, and especially the shoppers for making this event a great success.  We hope to make this an annual event!

Mud, Anyone?

Labyrinths can be created out of a number of materials. In Santa Fe, the labyrinth at Frenchy’s Field Park is made out of earth, water and straw, known as “cob.” In a similar to the process to the one used to make adobe bricks used for buildings, the materials are mixed, formed and allowed to harden in the sun. The labyrinth gets a lot of use and so must be maintained regularly. Here’s a photo of a mudding team hard at work.
