Pumpkin Day is Coming!!!!

Saturday, Oct 20th, between 10 am and noon, ICG invites children from any of our five neighborhood gardens to come with an adult to pick out and carve a pumpkin of your choice. There will be pumpkins galore, apple cider and donuts, too!

Please contact me before Saturday if you need pumpkin carving tools. Each garden will provide their own cider and donuts.


Pumpkins will be held at Aqua Systems after Monday, Oct 15th. Please arrange to have them picked up from that location by volunteers from your garden between 8 am and 4 pm. Each garden will get one tote, about 50 pumpkins.

You also need to pick up a bag of garlic for your garden which will be planted on the 27th, after bed cleanup. Each head has about 6-8 cloves that need to be broken up before planting base down in bed.

When you come, stop by the store and check with Kevin who will show you where the pumpkins will be stored.

I will pick up the pumpkins & garlic for Hope House, which will do this activity at the Matt Urban Hope Center, 385 Paderewski Dr, Thurs, Oct 25th between 4:30 and 6 pm. If you are able, please come down to help.
