Bella Organic’s 2023 Corn Maze Message is “No More Silence, End Gun Violence”
“It only takes an idea to make a difference, and together we can make a lasting change. While personal issues require individual solutions, community problems require community action to solve. Gun violence affects each and every one of us. Ending gun violence is a must, but the first step is to talk about it. Instead of placing blame and pointing fingers, we encourage you to spark conversation with your community members and lawmakers.
The most difficult discussions are usually the most important. Get educated, get involved, and listen to what other people have to say. Take ACTION, not SIDES. The only way through is together. A simple message of love from a simple farmer.”
About the Corn Maze
This fall, get lost in our 7-acre corn maze on Sauvie Island. We are known for our annual inspiring and intricate corn mazes, that include relevant designs intended to spark conversation or raise awareness for current issues in the midst of an ever constant and saturated news cycle. The 2023 theme will be announced by Mid-August 2023. The 2022 theme was “HOPE” complete with the word woven seamlessly between acres of corn, and coupled with The Lifeline (Dial 988)- the National Suicide Prevention Hotline. Through years of a global pandemic, recent war, economic instability, and rises in suicide rates, our corn maze this year touches on a topic that has affected everyone’s lives regardless of age, race, gender, or socioeconomic status.
Enjoy a hot cup of apple cider over a game of trivia about the maze, and compete with your friends/family inside the maze to win a game inspired by Clue. Spark conversation about mental health this fall, and how we can lean on each other during difficult times inside and outside of our communities.
A portion of the proceeds will go to support a local non-profit, annually.
There are approximately 2.7 miles of start-to-finish pathways in our 7 acre Sauvie Island corn maze, and it takes intrepid visitors an average of one hour to figure their way out.
