Key Allegro Garden Club
  On Key Allegro Island in the city of Rockport Texas

       
                 INDEX


Key Allegro is basically a sandbar whose development is about 35 years old.  Those who long for large native oak trees often move from the island to other areas of Rockport.  This club is for those who love the water that surrounds us and want to share tips as to which plants will and won't survive our environment, and what can be done to help them survive. Membership in the club is limited to women currently living on the island and those who have previously lived here.

Serious gardeners are referred to the following web site, they are our greatest information resource. http://aransas-tx.tamu.edu/

One specific project of the Key Allegro Garden Club is the selection of a "Yard of the Month" for each of the nine months, September-May.  See the Yard of the Month page, or local newspaper, for specifics.


All changes to the bylaws voted on in October passed.


The festival of flowers, April 26, was a huge success!
