About Us

The Lyons Garden Club was formed in 2008 by three local women who wanted to beautify the town of Lyons, Colorado through the power of flowers.  They first began with a prominent spot in town known as the Mushroom Planter (since renamed to the Butterfly Planter).  These intrepid women cleaned up the planter and enhanced it with plants from their own gardens.  From this humble beginning, the Lyons Garden Club has quickly grown in size and has since transformed many of the public garden areas in the town of Lyons.

The Lyons Garden Club is a volunteer organization and we rely on donated time, effort, and funds from our community.  We have applied for and received grants from both the Lyons Community Foundation and the Colorado Garden Show, Inc.  Additionally, we run a yearly fundraiser, the Chili Cookoff, in October in conjunction with the town of Lyons' Halloween Parade.

Our Mission Statement is "to beautify Lyons one flower at a time".  In a typical year we plant over a thousand daffodil bulbs along the primary traffic thoroughfare in Lyons, allowing both residents and visitors to enjoy the spring blooms.

In recognition of our efforts, in 2011 we were awarded by the Lyons Chamber of Commerce with the First Annual Spirit of Lyons Award and hope to receive similar awards in the future.
