Kappa Chapter of the American Gourd Society

The purpose of the Texas Gourd Society is to promote interest in and appreciation of gourds, both to our membership and to the general   public.    We will do this by sharing information through education, meetings, festivals and shows related to the culture, history, uses,  crafting and artistry of  gourds.
