A non-profit gardening club in Lyon opens its grounds on June 18 so people can admire the flowers of the mountain.
Tickets for the self-guided tour of Lyons Garden Club became available for purchase this month, according to a press release.
Aptly named, the second annual Mountain Blooms tour will include the chance to see 10 featured gardens, including flower gardens, butterfly gardens, and vegetable and fruit gardens. Those who visit can also meet gardeners and hobbyists who garden not only for their own enjoyment, but also to contribute to the health of the local ecosystem, according to the statement. Attendees can learn about plants that thrive in the local climate, explore exceptional creative spaces, and get landscaping tips.
The tour raises funds for the Garden Club to be used in community gardens and public planters in Lyon. Although tickets are free, the nonprofit recommends a donation of at least $5.
Tickets can be purchased online or in person on the day of the visit. In-person tickets can be found at a table in Sandstone Park along Railroad Avenue between Third and Fourth Streets in Lyon. Registrants will receive maps and directions to sites.
The statement says driving or cycling to various garden sites around Lyon is encouraged. To learn more, people can visit the nonprofit’s website, lyonsgardenclub.com/garden-tour.
