Gourds to Tools: Crafting Crops into Dishes

March 20, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Gourds to Tools: Crafting Crops into Dishes

10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.; $5 per person, free for children under six

It has been said that early Americans not only grew their own food but also their own dishes! Gourds were used often as bowls, dippers, cups as well as shelters to attract birds that were essential for insect control in agrarian habitats. Join us as we turn the gourds that were grown in the garden last summer into functional tools that will be used to enhance the interpretation at Ben Lomond. Masks are required when indoors and are recommended when outdoors.

Ben Lomond Historic Site, 10321 Sudley Manor Drive, Manassas, VA 703-367-7872.
