Psi Chapter of the American Gourd Society
The objectives of the Mississippi Gourd Society are to promote the culture and crafting of gourds, to provide informational and educational services to its members, to have all members involved in the promotion of gourds and gourd crafting, and to provide an annual show for the promotion of gourds, gourd crafting, the sharing of ideas, and general fellowship with other members. We hope you’ll join us in this effort, both here in Mississippi and in other areas of the country. We’re all gourdheads, no matter where we are!
Mississippi Gourd Society is a non-profit organization.

In Loving Memory of Paul Stanley Grubbs, 1957-2015
Our Mississippi Gourd Society President, Paul Grubbs, lost his battle with cancer on August 15, 2015. He had served less than a year as our president. He served as the show chair for the 2013 and 2014 Mississippi Gourd Festivals and had agreed to serve as show chair again this year. He was a gourd grower, a patron of gourd art, and enthusiastic supporter of Mississippi Gourd Society. He was a great friend to many of us. He was well known for his kindness, humor, and unselfish support of others. He’ll be greatly missed. –Mike and Michelle Thompson
