Kappa Chapter of the American Gourd Society

The TEXAS GOURD SOCIETY, is a part of the national organization, the AMERICAN GOURD SOCIETY.​​

The Texas Gourd Society (TGS) is a 501(c)3 organization whose members meet to share their knowledge, skills and creativity in producing works of art from gourds. The society publishes a quarterly online newsletter, The Gourdzette, that provides information about gourd “patches” in your area, what they are doing, sources for gourds and seeds, educational materials, workshops, seminars and many other ​things.

TGS sponsors the annual Texas Gourd Festival where gourd artists gather from across the US to teach, learn and sell gourd art and supplies. TGS members receive discounted festival admission and booth fees. We hope you will join us and see what our excitement is all about.
