Before we started to plan the 2017 corn maze, we were contacted by the UW-Madison Geology Museum folks, RIch Slaughter and Brooke Norsted. They suggested doing a trilobite corn maze–and they were pretty persuasive. We talked a lot about making a trilobite the main image in the maze, and having a sort of geology-ish theme, and then having a lot of fun education and engagement opportunities. I was basically sold when they showed me their trilobite temporary tattoos. So, we were committed to doing a trilobite very early on in the design process.
What kind of business would want to hire more than twenty 14- to 16-year-olds all at once, with no job experience, and continue to do this EVERY year?
The Treinen Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch here in Lodi does just that. I have worked at Treinen’s for more than five years (and I am well over 16 years old!!!).
