Garden Island is a unique coastal environment nurtured by the presence of thick forests of mangroves. Inspired by the beautiful form of the mangrove seedling, a propagule, we have created a distinctive labyrinth design which will be temporarily reproduced for this event on an inviting open space near the boardwalk. The labyrinth, as a form, has been shaped and given meaning over many thousands of years – the oldest forms dating back 4,000 years to petroglyphs found carved into rock. As a mindfulness tool the labyrinth brings focus to the here and now. One of the ways in which a labyrinth can be used is to walk it with intent. All participants will have the opportunity to walk the labyrinth with an intention – to protect the biological diversity of the mangrove ecosystem around Barker Inlet, and other fragile environments on our planet.
