The garden workdays are every 4th Tuesday, 8 am - 10 am, unless the park is closed. Bring water, hat and personal tools. Contact Tina in advance if you need your park entry ($2 cash) paid.

Here is a video tour of the Lettuce Lake Garden produced and narrated by Tia Silvasy, Suncoast member and Hillsborough County Extension service. Tia heads up the Master Gardener program which has been helping out with the garden here and at Bell Creek.
