Within the maze, there are checkpoints that will assist visitors to find their way through the maze. Signs with riddles are posted inside the maze to help visitors in their navigation. The major goal of the Maize Maze is to raise money for the programs at the farm. Service-learning programs bring over 1,000 visitors to Rio Grand Community Farm each year.
