We are approaching our third year as gourdeners. Having started on a whim, we were soon caught up in the glory of gourds! We enjoy all aspects of gourdening and sharing that joy with others. There is much to be said for the "trial and error" method of any kind of gardening, but we are glad to count all our time as a learning experience.
I am currently a Master Gardener Intern and am thrilled to have such valuable resources at hand.
Our finished work includes birdhouses, bowls, dippers, decorative wall and door pieces, Christmas ornaments, and more. We use pyroengraving, pastels, paints, decoupage, dyes, weaving and other various applications to beautify these challenging natural canvasses.
