This new growing space is starting the summer of 2018. Utilizing an abandoned lot from the Tornado in 2011, Northside growers wanted to see a place where the youth can go and pick their own pumpkin to take home for harvest festival. Large carving pumpkins will be grown along with a diverse squash variety for market at the local co-op.
Currently this garden is a growing garden, and not a gathering garden. Local high school students and volunteers will tend to the plants, but to respect the immediate neighbors surrounding the garden, this will remain a quite place to grow.
The Folwell Pumpkin Patch can be found at 37th and Emerson Ave N.
