"Rural villagers in Tanzania had never heard of the American holiday called Halloween. Also they had never seen this type of pumpkin before. I gave my friend some seeds and after some weeks, she proudly brought a home grown pumpkin to my house. I showed her how we carve jack-o-lanterns, roast the seeds, and bake pumpkin bread. She kept a few of the seeds to share with others and to plant again the following year; and for many years after that." - Peace Corps Environment Volunteer Heath Roy
