A small-scale community-based experience.
A small, but meaningful community project conceived of and executed during fall of the 2020 pandemic to bring joy and connection into the lives of people in the Leominster, MA community. Visitors to the Gardeners' Spot nursery and farm on the first Saturday in October were encouraged to look for small paper pumpkins hidden around the property. Those who found an origami pumpkin took home a real pumpkin decorated with a goofy face. They were then encouraged to share the smile that experience created by decorating their own pumpkins and leaving them on the porches of friends and family, along with a ready-made note encouraging the recipients to do the same for someone else.
