The North Carolina Gourd Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation dedicated to the culture and heritage of gourds in America. NCGS takes seriously the goal of promoting gourds and gourd education. Each year we hold a gourd festival to promote gourds and provide a fun opportunity to see gourds from around the world, compete in gourd competitions, learn about growing gourds, make new friends, take gourd art classes, buy gourds and related items, etc.
The North Carolina Gourd Society (formerly the Gourd Village Garden Club) first met in Cary in 1937. The oldest chapter of the American Gourd Society, it is among the oldest garden clubs in North Carolina.
