Hillsborough County's First Garden Park

Our mission is to provide education and to serve as a sustainable model for organic gardening, native landscaping, and related technologies while providing opportunities to participate in healthy outdoor activities, responsible environmental leadership, growing organic food, and community building.

Take a look around this web site to learn more about our garden, its members and find links to helpful gardening resources.

Herb Spiral

VISTA now has a new herb spiral to enhance our ability to grow herbs and add beauty to our lovely garden.


Thank you, MJ and Jerry, for all the hard work!

VISTA Needs Your Help

As many of you may already know, on Oct.22 the well water pump was damaged and must be replaced. Until the replacement is completed VISTA Gardens members are asked to bring water for garden use. We do have a limited supply of water that has been pumped from the pond but should not be used on garden items that will be consumed raw.

The replacement of this pump is a significant unplanned expense for VISTA Gardens. We need your help to cover this expenditure. Any donation amount is greatly appreciated. Donations can be made via the donate button on the VISTA website or cash/check in the black box located in the shed.
Thanks in advance for your generosity and remember all donations are tax deductible.


Our Garden Has Grown

Despite the heat and humidity, several of our gardeners sweat it out and added seven new raised beds plus repaired the wood decay in our existing beds.

A big thank you to the tireless members of our Infrastructure Committee for your perseverance.
