The remaining programs will be listed soon!  

We are open to anyone that wants to know about herbs and their many uses!  We have no rules, no dues and we are a relaxed group! So come on by for a fun time.  

Mission Statement

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 and roses.

Come and learn everything you ever wanted to know about herbs. Do you know that there are over 2,000 herbs and that roses are herbs too? Do you know that many of our Texas Native Plants are also herbs? Herbs are used not only for culinary purposes, but also for medicinal, cosmetic and craft purposes.

We 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.

We are open to the public. Some members of the group are available as speakers to other audiences.

Hello Herbies!

I am writing you early so you will be prepared (and hopefully get the emails) that our next meeting will be held on Thursday, Sept 15th.  It will be at 10 AM and we will meet at my house.  My address is 117 El Cid Dr.  That is the corner of Spanish Woods Dr. and El Cid. It is on the north side of the street.

The program will be on lemongrass.  I hope you can all make it.
