Island Farm Seeks Volunteers for Fall Event

By on September 8, 2023

This fall, Island Farm will host its 12th Annual Pumpkin Patch event, welcoming the season with a plethora of fall activities. The Farm is seeking volunteers for the event who will assist with a variety of activities such as; food service, candle making, pumpkin sales and transport, front desk check-in, and parking.

“Pumpkin Patch is fall fun to the max”, stated Site Manager Michelle Clower, “volunteering is just as exciting as attending the event itself. Volunteers receive a free pass, a t-shirt and one pumpkin in exchange for their help and are active participants in event activities.”

Pumpkin Patch has been a staple event for the non-profit living history farm that opened to the public in 2010. The event attracts locals and visitors alike while providing family-fun activities rooted in Outer Banks history.

For more information, please contact Island Farm at islandfarm@obcinc.org or call (252) 473-6500.
