4-H pumpkin carving and baking workshop offered for ages 5-7 in Currituck

Currituck County 4-H will host a workshop centered around all things pumpkin for children ages 5-7 on Monday, October 30, 2023, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at NC Cooperative Extension Currituck Center located at 120 Community Way, Barco NC.

Pumpkins are an original all-American fruit and they have many uses in today’s world. This hands-on activity is fun and messy and is the perfect way for our youngest 4-H’ers to learn all about the “Great Pumpkin”.  While dissecting a pumpkin, participants will learn how pumpkins grow, the different parts of a pumpkin and their uses, and that not all pumpkins are orange. They  will also carve  pumpkins and make tasty pumpkin muffins.
