Socially Conscious and Agriculturally Responsible

Our supplier, Pumpkin Patch Fundraisers, exercises sustainable agricultural practices. All Pumpkin Patch products are non-GMO. Cover crops are used to prevent soil erosion & suppress weeds, reducing the need for the use of herbicides. These responsible agricultural practices mean that we provide a great product, which has less of an impact on the environment.  

Pumpkin Modeling Debut with Culture Shock

The pumpkins got a supporting role in a recent jewelry photo shoot in the patch.  Christine Alexis, the designer of Culture Shock  jewelry contacted us about doing a photo shoot in the patch and we were so flattered.  As it turns out we have a lot in common with this young local company.  The pumpkin patch business model is socially conscious and agriculturally sustainable.  Culture Shock is too!

The Pumpkin Patch it OPEN!

The pumpkins have arrived!  The patch is open!

Our Katrina Story

On this fifth anniversary of Katrina, I, Nieta Nunn, widow of the pastor at the time, Cliff Nunn, am writing a few memories of that event.  Cliff and I were planning to ride out the storm, as we usually did, but during the early morning of Aug.

Katrina Remembrance Event Potluck Dinner

Join us on Saturday night for a shared commemorative fellowship as we recognize the 10th Anniversary of Katrina and the Levee Failures. 

All are welcome!  This event is open to all whether you lived here before Katrina or not, whether you flooded or not, or whether you mourn what we've lost or celebrate what we've gained.

Kitchen Renovation Update

The FUNdraising Team has been taking a bit of a summer break, but with this lovely cooler weather we are getting back to work! We are pleased to report that we have secured one of the largest items on our list - a commercial refrigerator! One of our donors provided their gift early and we were able to select, purchase, and install it. And it's a beauty!

Youth Group Pool Party

First Pres Elder and mother of two, Tracy Rene Helms-Capasso, is forming a greater New Orleans youth fellowship among the New Orleans area Presbyterian Churches. She is excited about making this a reality to offer area kids the same positive experience she had as a teen.  The first event will be a pool party for kids in grades 6-12 on Saturday, August 8 from 1-4.

What are Tracy Rene's initial ideas and goals for this group?
