See the Amazing October Pumpkin Patch at the Epiphany Parish in Walpole

The Epiphany Church of Walpole, Mass., will hold its annual Pumpkin Patch throughout October at 62 Front St., across from the Walpole Town Common. Monday through Friday hours are 11:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., and Saturdays, Sundays and Columbus Day from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. A seemingly endless supply of pumpkins will soon arrive in a huge truck that will have traveled to Walpole from the Navajo Indian Reservation in Farmington, N.M.!

Thousands of pumpkins saturating the lawns at this quaint 125-year-old Walpole church and its rectory (only 18 miles from Boston) is not only an amazing autumn New England sight, but also a sure fire way to pick the perfect pumpkin while helping those in need. The Pumpkin Patch is a fundraiser for Epiphany Parish and 3/4 of the proceeds are returned to the Navajo Reservation to help the Native American reservation allocate much-needed funding for education, job training and basics for necessary everyday living. One fourth of the earnings remain with Epiphany for other outreach projects.

As you can tell by the photos, the pumpkin scene is a truly spectacular scene — and juxtaposed with the beautiful Walpole Town Common for further enhancement!
