About Tryon Garden Club

who we are

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.


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
