If you’ve been on Cal Poly Pomona’s (CPP) campus during the fall, then you have definitely seen the pumpkin patch that crops up every year. But did you know those little orange pumpkins peppered throughout the AGRIscapes field are up for grabs?
You can get yours by attending Fall in the Farm, a free event for CPP students hosted by the Bronco Events and Activities Team (BEAT)! This year’s event will be on Oct. 12 from 5-8 p.m. at the Farm Store (Bldg. 211).
