Preserving a Legacy
Venetucci Farm is more than a farm, its a community icon. For years, Nick and Bambi Venetucci opened up their fields to thousands of children to give away pumpkins. In 2006, PPCF took over the farm to preserve their legacy. We ensured the land would be protected forever, and that the pumpkin giveaway would continue after Nick and Bambi passed.
Pumpkin Giveaway in 2018
The annual pumpkin giveaway is at the heart of the Venetucci legacy.
This year we are partnering with Catamount Institute to host our event. Catamount Institute will provide a standards-based science education course to the thousands of kindergarten students visiting Venetucci Farm this year to collect their pumpkin.
Here are a few things to remember for the pumpkin giveaway:
- Nick Venetucci’s rule has always been that each kid has to carry their own pumpkin
- The giveaway is available to kindergarten classrooms that schedule their event with Catamount Institute.
Contact Sam Hinkle at Catamount Institute to find out when your kindergarten class can come to Venetucci Farm.
