Focus Weekend- The Humble Calabash

October 18 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Oct. 17th & 18th:
The calabash, or gourd, was readily seen in many 19th century gardens and found many uses among enslaved people. Join us as we explore the background of the calabash, and take part in making items for use around the Quarters. Take home seeds to grow your own heirloom variety gourds!
