Recently, the Asheville Friends of the Earth Garden Club came to hold their monthly meeting in our garden and greenhouse. Our contribution to their program was a demonstration and talk by our friend and collaborator, Nancy Shoch. She showed how pumpkins and gourds can be used as vases/containers to create stunning Autumn centerpieces. In addition she focused on using cut flowers, colorful foliage, seed pods, etc. that are found in our gardens and backyards this time of the year.
