Ann Ferguson is Ingomar Garden Club President for 2016
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society is a nonprofit membership organization founded in 1827 that offers programs, activities, workshops, and publications for gardeners of all levels and interests. We are honored to be the recipient of this award for David Councill Park. A gardening project since 1956.
We are celebrating seventy years of being a group of women dedicated to making our piece of Pittsburgh a place that makes you proud. Originally founded as an offshoot from a social club in 1946, the Ingomar Garden Club quickly grew into an organization committed to cleaning up local unsightly areas and turning them into public gardens. This required a knowledge of landscaping that evolved into all the other aspects of gardening. Floral design was intorduced, meanwhile horticulture florished as we traded seeds and swaped ideas on better ways to compost. If you are on this website the rest is "history' as you can see. Forgive us as we give ourselves a pat on the back and say, "We done good."
The weather was 50 degrees, the waiter a saint to put up with us, the fellowship and food great ! Time for the Snowbirds to head for home and join us for the IGC March meeting 2016 is a busy year for us
