Pumpkin patch to raise funds for new production garden.

PALM CITY – The newly constructed Palm City Farms Produce & Market is hosting the Palm City Pumpkin Patch to help raise funds for its partner project with House of Hope – a large scale production garden to grow healthy food for Martin County residents experiencing hunger and hardship. The upcoming farmers market situated at the corner of Highway 714 and Citrus Boulevard. It is setting aside a half acre of its land to assist House of Hope in supplying their four Client Choice pantries with fresh fruits and vegetables. As the project will require garden supplies and building materials they are inviting the public to support the project. Then you can support by purchasing Halloween pumpkins at their inaugural Palm City Pumpkin Patch fundraiser from Oct. 14 – 31.

The Palm City Pumpkin Patch has invited area growers and artisans. They will set up a pop-up greenmarket Saturday, Oct. 21, and Oct. 28. Food vendors will be on-site. This includes Circle Bar C Dairy Goats, Hani Honey, Cherokee Hobby Farm, and the South Fork FFA’s barbecue booth. Children will enjoy face-painting and pony rides hosted by Amazing Dream Makers.

“We are honored to be partnering with this community-minded new business, the Palm City Farms Produce & Market, on this much-needed production garden project and grateful that they are stepping up to help raise money for our new endeavor by hosting this pumpkin patch,” said House of Hope CEO, Rob Ranieri.

The Palm City agricultural community has also embraced this project. Several volunteers from the Martin County Young Farmers and Ranchers, and The Martin Grade Rustlers 4H signed up to assist pumpkin shoppers each weekend from Oct. 14  through Oct. 31. Volunteer opportunities are still available for this fundraiser and interested volunteers may contact House of Hope volunteer manager, Lauren Mustelier, at (772) 286 – 4673 x 1004 or email Lauren@hohmartin.org.
