VISTA MATTERS:  Happy Holidays from VISTA
End of Year Giving
As we come to the close of another successful year at VISTA now is a good time to look back and reflect on all of the achievements made at the garden this year.

From launching the highly successful "Generations" events to growing seedlings for every participating member, VISTAs ability to serve not only its members but also the larger community has been quite an accomplishment.

VISTA also has grown into a popular volunteer destination for middle, high and collegiate students alike and their work has benefited the community by keeping mulch spread, rows weeded, flooding avoided and walls painted.

Our community education and social gatherings helped not only improve our ability to learn how to be better gardeners but also develop friendships and support systems.

All of this activity has been achieved through a combination of our annual dues, community grants and personal giving.

As we reach the end of the calendar year many take this opportunity to donate to their favorite organizations. We hope that VISTA has become one of your favorites and that you please consider including VISTA in your giving plan. As you may know, VISTA has an all volunteer Board of Directors and committees so 100% of your donations go directly to supporting the community.

You can donate in two ways:
  1. Write a check to "VISTA Gardens" and leave it in the box in the garden shed
  2. Donate online by using the "Donate Today" button on the VISTA Gardens home page

All donations are tax deductible and you will receive a giving confirmation for your records.

We thank you for your support of VISTA and look forward to making our community a stronger, more vibrant place to be.
