CALABASH - A Festival of Gourds, Art, and the Garden
Food For Thought, in collaboration with the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, present the 16th annual Calabash, Sonoma County’s most colorful and inspiring harvest event! Calabash features a silent auction of fine gourd art, along with tours of Food For Thought’s beautiful organic gardens at their peak. Guests at Calabash enjoy a sumptuous array of fine food and wine from Sonoma County’s bountiful harvest, and live music played on hand-made gourd instruments. The event will also feature a sale of unique garden art and book art, and an exclusive selection from Food For Thought Antiques. All proceeds support Food For Thought, a nonprofit that serves 800 men, women, and children living with HIV and other serious illnesses in Sonoma County. Now in its 27th year, Food For Thought provides high quality groceries, vitamins and supplements, and nutrition education at no cost to its clients.
