The Rotary Club of Santa Paula Faulkner Farm Pumpkin Patch has closed for the 2010 season. What a fun and fabulous October we had!
Over 21,000 visitors experienced the heritage and tradition of Santa Clara Valley agriculture. We could not offer this great opportunity to our visitors without the help and support of our very important partners and volunteers. A very heartfelt THANK YOU to University of California Hansen Agricultural Center, Limoneira, Link Leavens, The Optimist Club of Santa Paula, Fillmore Sunrise Rotary Club, Isbell Condor Cancer Crushers, CSU Channel Islands Rotaract Club, Santa Paula High School Interact Club, First Five of Ventura County, Duke's Car Club, Santa Paula Police Explorer's, Master Gardeners, and many individual volunteers. The new photo contest provided a fabulous view of the farm through many eyes. The family time, children's eyes in amazement, the laughter, the new found knowledge shared by the Master Gardeners will be treasured memories to be carried, utilized and shared for generations to come. We always enjoy the stories of how many years and generation's families have been visiting the farm. We look forward to announcing the grant program next year to award the proceeds. Happy Holidays!
