About Tryon Garden Club
Tryon Garden Club's 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.

Preserving and protecting Pearson’s Falls and Glen and making it available for public enjoyment
