The harvest season conjures countless memories—the crunch of fallen leaves, the smell of pumpkin pie, and the melodious sound of a scarecrow belting out the blues. Summon seasonal feelings with this Groupon.
$7 for One Straw-Maze Admission and One Pumpkin ($15 Value)
After navigating the straw maze, patrons can pick out any pumpkin up to 15 pounds, ideal for carving jack-o'-lanterns.
Eggleston Garden Center
Splashes of colorful annuals mingle with perennial plants and potted saplings at Eggleston Garden Center. The center is operated by Eggleston Services, an organization that provides education, job training, and employment opportunities for people with disabilities. As patrons browse through and buy bags of mulch or pots of seasonal vegetables, they're directly contributing to helping a disability-affected person further achieve an independent lifestyle. The garden center also helps its clients become friendlier to earth’s ecosystem by designing native plant landscapes. The team even helps them garden organically, choose plants that reduce water and pesticide consumption, and understand that recycling does not mean riding a bike again. In the fall, straw mazes entertain little ones and bulbous pumpkins await a future as jack-o'-lanterns; in winter, groves of Christmas trees pop up and spread their piney scent throughout the air.
