The annual pumpkin drop-off provides Durango residents with a sustainable option to leaving gourds to rot on the doorstep or throwing them in the trash,
Pumpkins and other fruit are collected and donated to local farmers for use as animal feed. New in 2018, residents also dropped off leaves for collection by Table to Farm Compost.
300 pumpkins donated to local pig and cattle farmers
180 bags of leave collected for compost
Thank you to our 2018 partners:
Quote from a local hog farmer who received pumpkins in 2017:
I think our little farm is well poised to grow with this... campaign at Three Springs in particular... It's a convenient location and it really helps me sustain a rare hog species in a responsible manner.
