Join us for our annual summer celebration Saturday, June 11, 2022! Our summer celebration will be held in The Leach Teaching Gardens at The Gardens at Texas A&M University from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. You don’t want to miss this fun-filled morning! Free parking will be available in Lot 97 at Reed Arena.
“In just four years, The Gardens has become a treasured campus landmark for our students, faculty and local community. It is not only a living teaching environment to educate university students, K-12 students and the public about agriculture, sustainability and nature, but also a serene green space for people to enjoy the outdoors and recharge.”
— Mike Arnold, director of The Gardens at Texas A&M University and professor of Landscape Horticulture
Story time with Chance the Librarian
There’s nothing quite like a good book with friends! Our friend, Chance the Librarian, is helping us celebrate The Gardens with story time in the Mexican Heritage Garden.
Bug Suckers with Junior Master Gardener
Our youngest visitors will enjoy getting up close and personal with The Gardens’ smallest inhabitants! Educators and volunteers with the Junior Master Gardeners from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will be offering a “make and take” session for children to make a homemade Insect Aspirator, fondly called a “Bug Sucker”. Educators will be demonstrating how to use the Bug Sucker kit allowing kids of all ages to collect, observe, and learn more about insects!
Fun and games
What’s a party without sweet treats and games? On top of lemonade and water, we will be offering JJ’s snow cones and cotton candy from S.O.S. Cotton Candy. Don’t leave without testing your skills at giant Jenga, checkers or corn hole!
We are dressed for the occasion! Visitors can enjoy our festive decor as they stroll through our gardens. Use our self-guided audio tour to learn more about The Gardens and its features.
