Tollgate Farm and Education Center
Planning for our annual MSU Tollgate Farm and Education Center Pumpkinfest 2018 is well underway, and we would love your help. Because of our many volunteers, Tollgate is able to positively impact adults and children in our community in life-changing ways.
Tollgate's Pumpkinfest, sponsored by Vibe Credit Union, is a free-admission, family-oriented event open to the public 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday, October 6th, and Sunday, October 7th. Educational and fun, Pumpkinfest explores the importance of agriculture in our daily lives.
Proceeds from Pumpkinfest help support educational programming on the site. Our financial aid fund helps provide scholarships for research-based programming for struggling schools and families.
U-pick wagon rides to the pumpkin patch, farm animals, straw maze, educational programs, children's activities, music, and food will be just some of the fun activities on site during Pumpkinfest.
Pumpkinfest is expected to host over five thousand visitors, and we need lots of help. Volunteer slots list the stations, times, age minimum, and special notes. You may sign up for morning and/or afternoon spots in the same area or two different areas. Volunteers are encouraged to attend our volunteer orientation. An email reminder will be sent several days before the orientation and the event.
We hope to have you on board as part of the fun and excitement of Pumpkinfest 2018 and thank you in advance for your continued support of Tollgate and its programs!
If you know of friends, schools, or organizations whom you think would like to volunteer, please let us know. If your company has a corporate volunteer program, please share a contact with us.
If you are a Master Gardener volunteer or trainee, please check with your Master Gardener Coordinator in your county before signing up to make certain your volunteer hours are approved. Thank you!
