A Hypnotically Aromatic Labyrinth in West Michigan Made Up of Different Varieties of Lavender


The Cherry Point Farm and Market in Shelby, Michigan is known by locals and visitors alike for a number of things, including their jams and jellies, summer fish boils and Tuesday Tea. The most unique feature about this West Michigan marketplace, however is a giant, hypnotically aromatic labyrinth and herb garden made out different varieties of lavender.

The Lavender Labyrinth encircles our beautiful, scent-ual herb garden featuring dozens of varieties. …Unlike a maze, a labyrinth is a continuous circuit and you cannot get lost. Pilgrims entering the great cathedrals of France during the middle ages, walked the labyrinths inlaid in the cathedral floor to prepare them for the sacred experience they were about to participate in.
