Thanksgiving Market and Gourds Workshop

Come out and enjoy the local, organic harvest. Apples, melons, potatoes, beets, carrots, cabbage, leeks, squash, pumpkins, fall decorative items and more...

Join us for our gourds workshop and squash swap from 10:00 am - noon.

Gourds are one of the oldest cultivated crops that are believed to have spanned the entire globe in prehistoric times. Gourds were most commonly used for storing supplies, hauling water, making cooking and eating utensils, musical instruments, bird feeders,bird houses, and rattles. Today gourds are still considered one of nature's greatest gifts to mankind.

Join us for a discussion of gourd growing and drying. Learn about the variety of vegetables in the cucurbits family and how to grow them organically. Bring a squash from your garden this season and swap it for a different variety.
