On Tuesday, November 29, 2011 Mac heads to Danville IL to the Harrison Park Club House, located at the west end of Voorhees Street. Speaking from 1:00pm-1:45pm, Mac will be presenting a full account of his life’s experiences, passion, education and contributions involving the Fascinating World of Pumpkins, Squash and Gourds.
We were all raised on the concept that the good ol’ ordinary pumpkin is the universal symbol of the Fall season. Now discover just how extraordinary this fruit and its very tightly-knit cousins – squash and gourds – truly are. You’ll marvel at the sheer volume of species in this cucurbitaceae family, and you’ll view your Halloween pumpkin through a more highly developed eye.
