Our Approach

Sowing the seeds for a deeper understanding of the power of nature as a healing space for individuals and communities

Stadium Place – Thanksgiving Place Labyrinth

Govans Ecumenical Development Corporation (GEDCO), TKF and the Baltimore community worked together to see this vision become a reality just in time for Thanksgiving 2006. GEDCO works in partnership with faith-based and community organizations to provide affordable housing, support services, food and emergency assistance to neighbors in need. Stadium Place, located in the Waverly neighborhood in Baltimore City, provides low-income senior housing. Thanksgiving Place is the interfaith epicenter of the project.

 

Thanksgiving Place is the gathering center and place of reflection for individuals and the community at large. Featured at the former site of the historic Memorial Stadium are flowering gardens, groves of trees, benches, a labyrinth, and most uniquely, a bell tower watching over the entire space, calling the community to gather and reflect.

    About Us

    We are a private nonprofit that supports, informs, and inspires the creation of publicly accessible urban green spaces. We believe that every city resident needs nearby green space to provide opportunities for mindfulness, respite, and renewal. The Foundation has issued its final grants to build five Open Spaces Sacred Places and research the impacts on a variety of users with the hope that the powerful connection between nature, spirit and human wellbeing will be scientifically proven.
