It will be the backyard of Texas A&M, a Central Park for Aggies: A sprawling 45-acre garden on west campus where students and visitors can enjoy indigenous flora, take in plays and concerts outdoors, tailgate, play in the greenspace and where students can get their hands dirty.

The Gardens and Greenway project, which has been in the making for two years and was partly designed by Aggie students, has officially kicked off its fundraising campaign. Headed by program coordinator and horticulturist Doug Welsh, the project needs nearly $60 million to come to fruition.

    What indigenous flora? Over there, wouldn't that be bermuda grass and concrete?

    Maybe some football boosters will re-route their money.
