When donations of many varieties of iris were shipped to Mountain View from iris growers, the work began! We planted iris around our Stone County Courthouse and on our city streets. Without the support and encouragement of county and city officials, businesses, and volunteers, we would be "frazzled" and our goals would not be realized! A big "Thank You" to our supporters!
We will be planting many more iris bulbs this year, and we will be planning festival activities for visitors and residents. We need volunteers to plant iris and maintain the gardens. We need volunteers to serve as committee members. A sanctioned iris show by the American Iris Society will be in our plans. We will ask folks to volunteer to be iris festival hosts. Mountain View residents always welcome visitors to share in the good times!
Please go to the home page to contact us. We could use your help in this community wide garden project. Thank you for your support!
Into each iris garden a little rain must fall, and fertilizer, and sunshine, and sweat! We have areas to adopt. If you belong to a student organization, athletic team, rodeo team, flower or gardening club, please adopt a garden area in our lovely community.
Please consider being a tour guide. Assist visitors as they tour various iris gardens in the community.
We are planning our first iris show. We invite you to see iris blooms on display and place an order if you wish to purchase irises for future planting. All proceeds go to the Mountain View Iris Festival, a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation in the State of Arkansas.
