Advocates for the community garden have invited the public to come get a Halloween pumpkin and make a donation to area food banks.

The Garden on Tyler Parkway will open up its Pumpkin Patch on Saturday, Oct. 5 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and every weeknight after that from 4 p.m. to dark.

Last year, Rim Country residents harvested 370 pumpkins and donated $3,000.

People with plots in the Community Garden have so far this year donated 10,000 pounds of fresh fruit and vegetables to area food banks.
