It is with great fanfare and elation that we announce the Gardens and Greenway Donations thermometer has erupted; it’s OVER THE TOP! You, the Master Gardeners of Texas, have given so generously to this project that we have met our 3-year goal in nine short months! We are so proud of each and every one of you who came together to achieve the naming rights of the Earth-Kind® Garden, one of the specialty areas of the Teaching Garden Complex within the Gardens and Greenway.
The excitement was palpable at the Directors Meeting as each subsequent donation kept the mercury rising higher and higher! The achievement was celebrated with toasts of champagne (well, ginger ale) by all those present.
Future donations will go towards expanding the Teaching Gardens, enhancing the signage and adding elements like statues or similar features. These gardens will be our “backyard” and we should feel very gratified by our contributions! You may view the donations by following this link.
This is amazing! I’m so proud for the Master Gardeners to take on this opportunity and achieve the goal so quickly.
The Texas Master Gardeners are the FIRST state-wide organization to come together, make a commitment and name a Garden in the Teaching Gardens Complex. Truly a tremendous example of the passion and contribution the Texas Master Gardeners make each day to the state, counties and neighborhoods in which they live.
Please note: we are officially shortening the name of the Gardens & Greenway to The Gardens at Texas A&M University.
