Don’t trash your pumpkins, smash them! Bring your jack-o-lanterns for composting at Village Green Park. Drop and go or take the opportunity to smash and chop your pumpkin. It will add nutrients to our community garden soil while keeping pumpkins out of the landfill. Please no painted pumpkins and all decorations and candles must be removed. If you stay to smash and wish to use tools, please bring a baseball bat or shovel. Free and open to the public, no registration required.
