Fall Pumpkin class October schedule

The class touches on the principles of pumpkin gardening, including seed germination, soil enrichment, pest control, and harvesting. The nutritional value is discussed for growing and cooking pumpkins. The student goes through the harvest preparation, including cleaning the pumpkin, drying of seeds and pulp. Students have the opportunity to make a pumpkin dessert. Pumpkin recipes and a lesson plan are taken home for optional further study. I teach the importance of taking care of our environment, respecting our resources God has blessed us with, and how the lesson is applied to the student's life. Classes are designed and taught for age appropriateness and level of skill. Parents who have other children with them, may stay and use Knollwood facilities, including a study room, public bathroom, several places to picnic on the property, or Bedford town is only 5 miles away.
