St. Thomas’ opened our first Pumpkin Patch in 2008. It’s an amazing outreach project that does good at every level. ,Our pumpkins are grown and harvested on Navajo reservation land in Northern New Mexico, bringing economic growth to that community. ALL proceeds from our patch are donated to these local charities. Then, when the patch is over, any pumpkins we don’t sell are donated to help feed the animals at Rikki’s Refuge (a no-kill animal sanctuary located in Orange, VA).
Our 2019 patch is now closed. We sold over $8500 worth of pumpkins in 20 days! Thanks to all who visited the patch, who worked at the patch, and who bought pumpkins! It was a great year.
