On April 9, 2011, we had the 7th Rockport Herb Festival which was a huge success. See 7th Rockport Herb Festival for more information. However, it was a lot of work for such a small handful of our members, between 12 to 15, to put on such a well-attended festival, i.e. somewhere between 450 to 500 attendees. It was great! However, our group decided that it was just too much work for so few members to put on such a large festival. So we made a decision not to put the festival on this year, 2012.
We have told inquiring people that we are more than willing to turn the festival over to a new group of people. We can provide all the information needed to get it going again! So if you or someone you know might be interested in taking it over, just give one of us a call. We will gladly give you what you need to know.
We still meet 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. So feel free to drop on by and visit with us.
