The Humble Calabash

10/29/2022 - 10/30/2022, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

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 Quarter. Take home seeds to grow your own heirloom variety gourds!
