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!
