Turning Point Foundation’s Growing Works Program will unveil Ventura County’s largest living labyrinth. With paths encircled with lavender plants, the labyrinth will be tended by employees at Growing Works nursery. Conceived by Naval Base Chaplain Patricia Coley, designed by Dr. Steven Sandifer, and named in honor of Dr. Richard Grossman, the labyrinth will be a place of welcomed beauty and healing. It is the centerpiece of the Demonstration Gardens for the Growing Works nursery where people with mental health challenges receive horticultural therapy, job training, and employment on their path to recovery and independence.
Dr. Grossman was an internationally recognized plastic surgeon and pioneer in the comprehensive treatment of burn wounds. When the Dr. Richard Grossman Community Foundation learned of the opportunity to partner with Growing Works on the labyrinth, they knew it would be the perfect way to recognize his outstanding career of healing people, his passion for plants, and his love of labyrinths.
Please join us for the labyrinth ribbon-cutting. While there you can walk the labyrinth, join a tour of the nursery given by Growing Works employees, enjoy refreshments and music, and receive a free drought tolerant plant — all in celebration of Turning Point Foundation’s 30th Anniversary!
