Pumpkin Pitch

November 5, 2022 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm America/Chicago Timezone

Join the Village and Go Green Wilmette for the 2022 Pumpkin Pitch today from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and November 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Village Hall (1200 Wilmette Avenue) and Centennial Park (2300 Old Glenview Road) parking lots. This event, coordinated by SCARCE, helps to reduce landfill greenhouse gas emissions from decomposing organics. Pumpkins are 90% water and produce a useful, nutrient-rich organic product, and composting them helps to restore eroded and nutrient depleted soils. Please remember to remove candles and decorations from your pumpkins before composting. Please contact the Public Works Department at pubworks@wilmette.com for more information.
