Every year, VC-CWA volunteers serve at the Santa Paula Rotary Pumpkin Patch at Limoneira. The Patch is fully booked with school field trips every Friday, and is open every weekend in October, and Rotary appreciates all the help we can give them! In past years, they have appreciated our help enough to make a very nice donation to VC-CWA in consideration of our hours of service... :-)
This year, they truly need our help.
Our Friday volunteer shifts involve escorting school field trip groups through all the stations (story time, hay ride, petting zoo, the maze...), helping the teacher, and keeping the class on schedule. Friday volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
Typically, our weekend shifts include serving as Cashiers, helping with the Hay Ride, the Pumpkin Chucker, the Pony Rides, or selling/taking entrance tickets. If you have a responsible youth who would also be able to help while you volunteer, he or she can certainly come too!
By helping with this program, we are supporting agricultural education field trips for kids from all over Santa Paula and beyond!
