Aspiring young farmers from the Boys and Girls Club in the Village of Oak Creek are raising pumpkins from seed.  This summer the children will weed, water and nurture the vines they planted May 4th at Sedona’s Institute of Ecotourism. In the fall the club members will celebrate the fruits of their labor with a seed roasting and pumpkin carving festivity. 



Origin believed to be South America

Cultivation began with American Indians in the United States.

Eventually seeds were sent to Europe through colonization.

Value was first placed on the seeds rather than the flesh of pumpkins.

Pumpkins found their way into US culture in Washington Irving's famous story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"
