"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.
Like they say "sweet smelling Mother Earth is smelling salts for the soul". Ingomar Garden Club provided the materials and the residents of Wexford House got busy and created some very intersting terraruims. Look closely and you will find a butterfly or a bird. click on Horti-therapy in the left hand column to see more photos
