Pumpkin Patch at 

Project Noah

 

October, 2001 was our first annual Pumpkin Patch educational program and fund raiser.

We served over 6000 children in the next 3 years from 2 states, 8 school districts, over 65 schools, and over 150 teachers.

 

Adults, parents, and kids came and experienced the fun!

First stop, the tent for a hay maze, educational program, and petting zoo.

Children saw Louise (alligator), Pandora (a 13-foot python), Little Man (Sulcotta tortoise-first picture), a llama, and many other baby domestic animals.

The angora hair rabbit was the softest thing we felt.

 

 

 

 

Petting and feeding animals and especially catching a PIG were other highlights under the tent.

 

The white turkey (above) was first named, Tom, but then we discovered he was a SHE, so we named her Jenny. Jake (left below) is upset about a decoy turkey!

 

Of course, all enjoy crawling through the hay maze.

 

 

Next, the hayride to see the big cats, lions and tiger!

 

On the hayride all went to the pumpkin patch to select a pumpkin.
