Indiana Gourd Society
Patch Information
Would you like to try something new? Would you like to have a Gourd Patch Group in your area? Just think, your own small Patch Group right in your neighborhood. Talk about crafting, growing, manipulating (tying knots, etc.) or anything else you want to show and tell and talk about. Think of the Gourd fun and fellowship you could have!

It has been made easy. We are encouraging individuals to sprout Gourd groups everywhere, regardless of present lines or present larger patches!

There are very few guidelines. Contact the Society President and advise him/her of your intentions and if you need any kind of support. Request for financial support will be decided by the President and two appointed Directors.

All Patches operate under the Indiana Gourd Society, Inc. mission statement and guidelines.

Doesn't that sound easy and fun? What a great support to the Society as these little patches can sprout up all over the state! Just think how the Gourd word will spread. Organize your Gourd Patch group today and start your Gourd Glow growing!!
