So you had a family outing to one of the local pumpkin patches, spent the entire day trying to pick the perfect pumpkin, and now your friendly jack-o-lantern face has morphed into some sort of wilted, maniacal jack-o-fright that you can’t wait to get rid of. Well, your local Community Food Bank has you covered! The Pumpkin Smash will be a great event for the entire family. Bring your pumpkins to compost, smash, or launch in the catapulting competition – all of which sound like fantastic ways to discard unwanted pumpkins. There will be live music, pumpkin recipe samples, and plenty of kids activities.
Come out to the Pumpkin Smash and learn more about gardening and sustainability organizations and some of the wonderful programs the Community Food Bank has to offer. This is also a great opportunity to check out Las Milpitas de Cottonwood if you’ve never been. Las Milpitas is a community farm that provides educational opportunities, capacity building, and a place for area residents to grow their own food.
