The Pumpkin Patch

Due to COVID-19, the Patch is suspended until 2021

As you know, our Patch is a fundraiser primarily for the Navajo Nation. We invite you to think back on years past and on the money you so generously donated as you decorated your homes, offices, and schools. We hope that you will then go to Adopt-a-Native-Elder and make a similar donation in support of our native siblings who have been particularly hurt by the Covid pandemic. Thank you.

 

Each year, a truck pulls up to our church and we unload hundreds — even thousands! — of pumpkins. The pumpkins are grown by the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. They ship the pumpkins to us, we sell them, and then we divide the proceeds up among several mission projects:

  • The Navajo Nation
  • The Winchester McCall Middle School After-school Programs
  • The Woburn Council of Social Concerns/Food Pantry
  • Boy Scout Troop 507
  • Winchester High School Connect and Commit Service Organization
  • Other mission needs that come up throughout the year

We’ll see you at the Patch in October 2021!

Our Pumpkin Patch
is an old-fashioned family event that is appropriate for all ages. Children, parents, grandparents, singles, couples, friends, and relatives will find something to enjoy at the Pumpkin Patch. We have pumpkins of all sizes, shapes and colors, gourds both big and small, home-baked goods, and more. Prices start as low as $0.50 and are priced according to the size of the pumpkin that you pick out.

 

 

Watch a video about the Patch
created by Brio Integrated Theatre

Brio Integrated Theatre, partnering with WinCAM, trained the NuPath interns of Woburn to work with video. BIT’s interns are men with disabilities who are learning how to be creative people in the community. They saw the pumpkins and wanted to do a story about it. They interviewed our volunteers, the interns did some research, and they shot footage of the Pumpkin Patch — all resulting in this beautiful video!
