Pumpkin Carving & Seed Saving

Leave a comment

We had a wonderful final Harvest Giveway at Intervale Green this year. In addition to giving away our final carrots, beets and peas of the season, we carved pumpkins for Halloween. Over 25 children and their parents were able to carve their own pumpkin just in time for the holiday. In addition, everyone scooped out their pumpkin seeds and learned to make a healthy, protein-rich snack: roasted pumpkin seeds. We also gave a workshop on seed saving and set aside some seeds to grow on the roof next year! Due to the overwhelming demand for pumpkins (not every child that attended was able to carve their own pumpkin), we saved a lot of seeds so that we can expand on this activity in 2017.
