SIXTH ROCKPORT HERB FESTIVAL
Paws & Taws Fulton Convention Center, 402 N. Fulton Beach Road, Rockport-Fulton, TX http://www.pawsandtaws.com
Presented by the Rockport Herb & Rose Study Group
The Sixth Rockport Herb Festival has a new location this year that we think will lure more people to our Herb Festival. 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. We have a good array of speakers and vendors lined up with lots of live plants. There will also be a couple of cooking demonstrations.
More information will be forthcoming!
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 (one of which is Gossypium cotton), 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.
Saturday, April 3, 2010 from 8:30 until 3:30 with programs starting at 9:00
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.
