40-Acre Gardens Underway at Texas A&M

Development has begun on the $9 million first phase of the 40-acre Texas A&M University Gardens, on the university’s campus in College Station, TX. The Leach Teaching Gardens, which is being developed on seven acres, is set to open in spring 2018, and will offer a pavilion and an event lawn in addition to the garden itself.

The Gardens project is 20 years in the making. In the 1990s, Mark Hussey, a dean at A&M, had a vision to set aside land to preserve scenic landscapes on the campus. In 1998, the Texas A&M University Board of Regents allocated the 40 acres around the Agricultural and Life Sciences Complex for that purpose.
