Food For Thought, in collaboration with the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, present the 15th annual Calabash - Sonoma County’s most colorful and inspiring harvest event. Calabash, named Best Fundraiser by readers of the North Bay Bohemian for the last three years, features a silent auction of fine gourd art, along with tours of Food For Thought’s beautiful organic gardens, which will be 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.

Proceeds from Calabash will benefit Food For Thought, which provides comprehensive nutrition and other services - free of charge - to 700 men, women, and children affected by HIV/AIDS and other critical illnesses in Sonoma County.
