Since 2007 the Kemper Center for Home Gardening’s holiday tree has been decorated with gourdaments - ornaments made from gourds and other natural and some artificial materials. These extraordinary creations have been made by Missouri Botanical Garden staff and volunteers. They are testament to the extraordinary talent, whimsy and skill of our staff and volunteers. Each year a theme has been chosen to help inspire the creators.
