"I would be willing to mail Bonnie a check for $5-$10 dollars to help cover the website cost.  If she got 25-30 more pledges, we could guarantee the website would remain.  I think  it is a valuable tool and hope we can keep it going."

What is your interest in gourds? Please be specific - one word answers will not be accepted. We block all potential spammers. YOU MUST use both your first and last name on your profile or we will not approve your membership.
They have been a way to expand my artistic interests as I try new patterns, painting and carvings. Since I grow my own, they are fairly inexpensive and fun to work with.
