The Rockport Herb & Rose Study Group, and we put on the Rockport Herb Festival. We joined Go Texan earlier this year, but we haven't heard back from you yet, so I'm going to post our information here about our 6th Annual Rockport Herb Festival. I just got my latest issue (April 2010) of "Texas Monthly" and on page 139, the Rockport-Fulton Chamber has us listed for things to do in Rockport! YEA! Thanks Chamber!

SIXTH ROCKPORT HERB FESTIVAL Saturday, April 3, 2010 from 8:30 until 3:30 with programs starting at 9:00
Paws & Taws Fulton Convention Center, 402 N. Fulton Beach Road, Rockport-Fulton, TX
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.

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.
