 I am out here in Alberta, and presume there aren't many fellow 'gourders' around.  I did get the the festival at Casa Grande in Feb. and saw so many beautiful works of art. I took two classes, but they were crowded and somewhat hurried, so not very satisfying.  I wish there was something closer to home where I could learn some techniques from a pro and not have to be trying to learn from the internet and books. I still have fun and usually end up making a bowl!  I stocked up on gourds, so have plenty to work with.  It's always fun.

Hi from Nova Scotia! With only 15 of us on here, I doubt there is anyone else from NS, most of you are probably out west or in Ontario, where things actually grow. I still recall my veggie garden in Ontario with longing... 

If there is anyone in NS, do you have any specific advice growing gourds outdoors in our, erm, "lovely" weather and "special" soil? Thus far, I figure replacing the soil entirely will be my best option. Or just trying to grow them in my living room, hah. I always wanted to turn my house into a jungle...

Hi all,
I had a great day Friday in Toronto at the Coast to Coast painting convention. I was subbing for an injured Adrienne (hope you are feeling better). Big crowds, lots of interest in gourds and what you can do with them. Thanks Barbara for organizing and setting up.

Hello all,
I'm not on this site very often, so I didn't notice our group here. I'm online now, at least!
