January 12, 2011 Program: Horseradish by Cindy Meredith

Rockport Herb & Rose Study Group Meeting for January 12, 2011 Program: Horseradish by Cindy Meredith

Horseradish Armoracia rusticana has been named "Herb of the Year" by the International Herb Association http://www.iherb.org/hoy2011.htm. It is in the Brassicaceae (Cruciferae) Family which also includes cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, turnip, rapeseed, mustard, radish, horseradish, cress, wasabi and watercress. Horseradish is probably native to southern Russia and eastern Ukraine but is cultivated widely in Europe and North America, where it has frequently escaped.

OK, it's a new year and I'm thinking about changing our Monthly Study Group meeting notifications. Suggestions are welcome.

Date: Wednesday, January 12, 2011 at 10:00 a.m.

Regular location: ACISD Maintenance Department (Formerly Rockport Elementary), 619 N. Live Oak Street, Room 14, Rockport, Texas

And remember everyone is always welcome to go to lunch after our meetings. We decide where we want to eat at the meeting.

Hope to see everyone for our January meeting!

And be sure to check our our websites.
