The Gardens at Texas A&M University welcomed more than 500 visitors from the Bryan-College Station community on June 15 to celebrate the sixth annual Summer Celebration.  

As they walked the lush and colorful garden paths, visitors to the family-friendly event enjoyed food and drinks, played games, made arts and crafts, and participated in various educational demonstrations.

Each year, birthday-themed festivities during June celebrate the opening of the Leach Teaching Gardens on June 15, 2018. Since then, faculty, students, the local community and visitors from across the country have enjoyed this campus oasis, learned about gardening, agriculture and natural resource conservation, and attended fun-filled events throughout the years.
