Pumpkin planting

Join us for:


FREE Seed Planting Event


June 1st (Saturday) | 9:30 - 11:00 am

Mike's Garden Harvest | 436 River Road, Gloucester

The garden beds are worked up and made ready. Everyone who comes gets a pumpkin seed and is guided where to plant it. Mike will take care of the plant as it grows all year long. Then in the fall, prior to Halloween, you can to come back and collect your harvested pumpkin.

It is a great way to show kids first hand the process of growing food - from a tiny seed to a big pumpkin! Quite remarkable when you think about it!
