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.

 

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

Kieran Roe, Executive Director of Conserving Carolina, will share the excitement around the 4,500 acres in Henderson, Polk, Transylvania and parts of neighboring counties that are currently under conservation through Conserving Carolina. Think “get people outside”, land protection, trails, greenways, and potential rails to trails.  Find out what the biggest threats are:  development patterns and climate threat.  Bring your friends and learn what’s happening in our very own part of the world!

 

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:

 

 

Pearson’s Falls and Glen is 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.
