WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Pumpkin season is back and the pumpkin patch at the Children's Home of Winston-Salem is ready for picking!

Every year, the Farmery at the Children's Home opens it's pumpkin patch during the month of October.

The public is invited to pick out pumpkins and gourds of all sizes along. There's also fall decor and other seasonal products for sale.

The Pumpkin Patch is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays.

The Children’s Home is an essential lifeline for all children at risk and families who need help. Whether it is an emotional or behavioral disorder that needs professional response, a temporary disruption to a family’s ability to provide stability and proper supervision, or a home environment that is simply too dangerous for a child, The Children’s Home is committed to caring for any child and helping any family that comes to us.

The farm at the Children's Home provides kids opportunities for learning, loving, cooperation, and belonging. Whether selling strawberries or vegetables to the community or celebrating a bumper crop of giant pumpkins, children who are trying to regain a sense of order in their world find solace and healing in the non-judgmental rhythms of nature, where background, age and status don’t matter.

The Children's Home of Winston-Salem is always looking for volunteers to help work the farm.

It's located at 1001 Reynolda Road in Winston-Salem. For more information on how to volunteer, you can call (336) 721-7624 or visit their website.
