Past News and Events

Bamboo Shoots are here! Fresh from the farm, never canned, Taiwanese-style GREEN BAMBOO SHOOTS. Crunchy, nutritious and bamboo-licious! They are Taiwanese-style shoots, grown from sub-tropical bamboos, which makes for shoots that are extra sweet, crunchy and fragrant-- in fact, they're seen as a delicacy in Japan and much of Asia. The cool part is, fresh, un-canned Green Bamboo Shoots have never been sold in the USA before (they all come canned from overseas) so these are the first EVER! If you're interested in getting your hands on some, call our office at 512.626.9825.

On that note, be sure to look for the article entitled, "Just Shoot Me" in the Summer 2008 issue of Edible Austin Magazine. It's about the URG and our new shoots!

We have vegetables! An acre of them! Beautiful, fresh melons, cukes, peppers, squash—you name it. Since we haven't bothered to get the extra stamp of approval from Uncle Sam, we can't tell you that they're organic. What we can tell you is, we only used the good stuff, no synthetic or petroleum-based fertilizers. No governmental agency's stamp of approval, just a promise from us to you. We usually sell at the Midtown Farmers' Market on Saturdays in Houston, but be sure to make sure we'll be there before you make the schlep. Again, just call our office at 512.626.9825.

For those of you in the nursery/landscape biz, be sure to look for our booth at the TNLA Expo at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, August 14-17. We will be sure to tell you everything you ever wanted to know about bamboo, and probably a lot more.

Past events

The East Austin Studio Tours took place in November, and the Utility Research Garden was visited by hundreds of interested people, who wandered around and wondered if bamboo would take over the earth eventually.

In early December, David attended the First Mexican Bamboo Conference in Xalapa, Mexico. He gave a presentation about the bamboo business in the United States, and generally had a great time looking at bamboo in another country.
