"We are commited to establishing roots in this community and watching them grow."
The Ingomar Garden Club was Established in 1946 as a philanthropic organization dedicated to the art of gardening, flower design, conservation of natural resources, enviromental protection and civic improvement. The club was federated in 1954. Meetings are the first Wednesday of the month, 10:30 am at St Johns Church, 311 Cumberland Rd., Pittsburgh, PA.
Well this was a first ! Our president, Linda Womsley conducted the meeting in a greenhouse. DJ's Greenhouse in Transfer, PA hosted the event and for a small fee provided a boxed lunch following the meeting. Dennis James, the owner and Master Gardner, taught us how to grow and care for the flowering hydrangeas. Afterward we shopped and all agreed the time was worth the trip.
As you can see the weather wasn't the best but put a gardener in a green house, it doesn't dampen their spirit. Just ask Marcia Wielgus.
Ok, I’m jumping the gun a bit on summer, but it is coming! What a
wonderful day we had for the Plant and Craft Sale! Thank you to
everyone who welcomed and assisted our customers! Thank you to our
returning and new customers too! (See you next year!). A huge thank
you to the Plant Sale committee who again went above and beyond to
make the day a success. I hope everyone has had the opportunity to
plant their purchases.
It seems May was a month with lots of opportunities to engage in club
activities! It started with our club meeting with Joe talking about TREE pruning and planting.
Then our Plant and Craft Sale. A trip to the Chatham College Arboretum where there were
TREES! Maybe you worked or will work in David Councill Park?! And this past week Hortitherapy
and the planting of the Passavant Planters.
In June, we will be traveling for our meeting to DJ’s greenhouse, where we can purchase MORE
plants! Plan to attend the Japanese Garden Tour on the 8th. In all of these activities, bring a
friend to introduce them to the garden club. Share the Season, Linda
