The Milledge Avenue Baptist Church’s pumpkin patch is a fall tradition for some students and area residents and an annual fundraiser for the congregation. It opened Oct. 3, and students in Prof. Lori Johnston’s Religion Reporting course on Oct. 4 interviewed clergy, volunteers and shoppers for quick-turn stories. Their social media posts, photos and text capture the colorful scene and community focus, and what the church does with the proceeds and leftover pumpkins.

Written by Haley Chambers and Caroline Odom, fourth-year students majoring in journalism, and Riley Roberts, a third-year student majoring in journalism in the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia.
