About Tryon Garden Club

 

Learn About Tryon Garden Club's Rich History

Since 1928, the Tryon Garden Club members have been dedicated to the advancement of gardening and the protection of wildflowers, birds, and wildlife.  Today, we are a vibrant group of individuals, coming from all walks of life and experiences.  We are united by a common interest in contributing to our magnificent natural world.  Whether in our gardens or at Pearson’s Falls and Glen, we are fulfilling the Club’s mission – to protect, beautify and educate. In 2018, the Club celebrated its 90th Anniversary.

 

The Club is active in three general areas:
  • Preserving and protecting Pearson’s Falls and Glen and making it available for public enjoyment

  • Civic beautification including the Tryon Depot Garden

  • Education of our members and the community at-large

 

Our mission also includes collaborating with others. We are active in our local community, supporting local businesses and non-profits who share common goals. These include the Foothills Chamber of Commerce, the Tryon Historical Museum and Conserving Carolina.    

 

Pearson’s Falls and Glen has noted as a Blue Ridge Natural Heritage Site, a North Carolina Birding Trail Site, and is included in the Smithsonian Institution Archives of American Gardens.
