One of your favorite Southern stories at FlourSackMama
is the history and utility of gourds
. We visited a gourd artist and gourd farmers in Georgia to bring you their stories. These folks have been really creative about preserving heritage while sustaining their local economy.
A favorite Southern storyteller we met this year was Silas House
, but then you probably already know who he is. Maybe you've read one of his novels. He's very popular with folks who care about preserving mountain heritage and a healthy environment in the face of mountaintop removal mining in Appalachia.
We enjoyed this fresh approach
to the Southern church potluck dinner.
