Gourds make great birdhouses, which attract birds, who eat bugs...and the circle of a happy garden continues...
This is why we plan to plant gourds in the spring.
In the mean time we are actively looking for folks with gourds to donate to the cause.
Wouldn't it be great for our kids to paint them and fill our gardens with color and birds?
Let us know if anyone has a good gourd resource!
...and for all you builders out there, any kind of birdhouse idea would be welcome and fabulous...either to bring in a bunch already made for the kids to paint or even to lead a building workshop?
The Garden Art Ideas are endless...we love to see art appear in the garden. Feel free, teachers and liasons, to add to our gardens in any way you wish...as long as it's rain proof !
