Arizona Gourd Society’s

at Spirit in the Desert Retreat Center
7415 E. Elbow Bend Road, Carefree, Arizona


We had a fun and educational Gourd Retreat in March of 2024 – the first gourding retreat organized by and for members of the Arizona Gourd Society.

Mark your calendars to attend next year – March 3-6, 2025

Arrive Monday night in time for a delicious dinner at 6:00pm and visiting with friends. Take class(es) on Tuesday and/or Wednesday, or bring your own projects to work on. Thursday morning grab an optional breakfast and head home with a brain full of new and creative ideas. Can’t make it for the full retreat? Just come for a day or two – Commuters are welcome!
