The Gardens at Texas A&M University is a planned transformation of 27 acres on West Campus into a public teaching garden. The first 7 acres, the Leach Teaching Gardens, opened in 2018 and feature 21 themed sections as well as a climate-controlled pavilion. Designs for the remaining 20 acres are underway and will include rose gardens, a family/children’s garden, educational and event venues, and a re-creation of The Grove, an outdoor amphitheater originally located on main campus for concerts, movies and events.
The Gardens also offer fun events throughout the year, ranging from yoga and wine tasting to educational classes for children. Whether you live in College Station or are just visiting Aggieland, we invite you to view the full list of events and ways to get involved at gardens.tamu.edu.
Bring your little one, ages 3 to 7, to The Gardens and embark on a hands-on, nature-based adventure! Occurring every month throughout the spring and fall, the Hullabloomers class brings science, art, music and outdoor exploration together to engage your child’s natural curiosity about the beautiful world around them.
Whether you are new to gardening or a seasoned pro, the Gardening Club offers monthly lunch and learn sessions to explore various aspects of gardening, including Texas superstar plants, rainwater harvesting and seasonal garden planning. Each session will provide you with expert knowledge and hands-on experience.
