The People/Plant Connection

Bringing the joy of gardening to people of all ages and abilities.

THE 2020 GIANT PUMPKIN CONTEST IS OFF AND RUNNING!

This year we mailed seeds to everyone who wanted to try their hand at growing a giant pumpkin.

We gave away a record number of seeds to people in San Angelo, Eldorado, Ballinger, Miles, Wall, Christoval, Mertzon, Carlsbad, Colorado City, Robert Lee, Dallas and Sterling City. 


Watch this page for photos as gardeners send in their plants in progress.


Plan to attend the 7th Annual Pumpkin Festival to see which one weighs the most. There will be activities for kids and adults, crafts for kids, Pup-Kin Costume Contest, cooking demonstrations and information for vegetable gardening. You won't want to miss a minute of fun!
