SIXTH ROCKPORT HERB FESTIVAL
Saturday, April 3, 2010
8:30 until 3:30
Paws & Taws Fulton Convention Center
402 N. Fulton Beach Road
The Sixth Rockport Herb Festival has a new location this year. It is going to be held at the Paws & Taws Fulton Convention Center right on Fulton Beach Road. It is right next door to the Fulton Farmers' Market with great views of beautiful Aransas Bay. So you can attend our festival and do a little Farmers' Market shopping all in one location!
We want to thank the Rockport-Fulton Chamber for their support. In the April 2010 issue of Texas Monthly, page 139, the Rockport-Fulton Chamber has us listed for things to do in Rockport! YEA! Thanks Chamber!
We have a good array of speakers, vendors with herbal products and lots of live plants, and some great food for sale. There will also be a cooking demonstration.
Some of the programs are as follows:
`Roses for the Lazy
`Waking up Your Plumerias
`Herbs for Women
`Cooking Demonstration by Chef Kevin Argetsinger
`Judy Barrett, Home Grown Magazine
`The Summer Vegetable Garden
`Herb Gardening With a Texas Accent
Come and learn everything you ever wanted to know about herbs. Did you know that there are over 2,000 herbs and that roses are herbs too? And did you know that many of our Texas Native Plants are also herbs? Herbs have been used for centuries for not only culinary purposes, but also for medicinal uses, in cosmetics, cleaning solutions, clothing, building supplies and art and craft purposes.
Our herb study group was founded in March 2003 and meets the second Wednesday of every month at the ACISD Maintenance Department (Formerly Rockport Elementary), 619 N. Live Oak Street, Room 14, Rockport, Texas at 10:00 a.m. to discuss all aspects of using and growing herbs including the historical uses of the herbs and tips for successful propagation and cultivation. We are open to the public. Some members of the group are available as speakers to other audiences.
The Rockport Herb & Rose Study Group, founded in March 2003, is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to increasing public knowledge and awareness about herbs.
