"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.
Since we knew our program was going to cover "Invasive Species" members came prepared to confront Amy Jewitt with their invasive "cuttings". Amy oversees a database listing invasive species information for the PA Natural Heritage Program and the Western PA Conservancy.

Ruth Kirk oversees "Edith's Garden" at the Northland Library. These photos are from her garden. Obviously she is more than qualified. The butterflies certainly love it.
Annual Picnic July 3rd
Not every backyard looks like a park but our hostess, Eileen Miller has grandkids so besides beautiful gardens to enjoy we also had swings and a slide.
Following the club meeting lunch was provided by members who turned out to be gormet chefs. Marie Kazmierczak and her crew set up inside as rain was predicted. (but didn't) Our traditional plant auction with our traditional auctioneer Julie Barnes, ably assisted this year by Barb Oswald, was fun as usual. There is nothing to compare with "the good old summertime"
Fall greetings gardeners,
September sure went fast! My flowers are all suffering from a lack of water, I may be partially to blame. I hope that yours are fairing better!
Thank you to the members who stopped by our tent at the Mccandless community day. We had a great day, and most of us enjoyed showing our worms! See worms here! Encouraged more kids than prospective members, we got our message out either way. Thanks.
I've been told that the Harmony tour was a success, wish I could have been there.
This month we invite our neighboring clubs to join our meeting, please make them welcome! Don't forget your food!
Hope you all can join us for our final field trip of 2019. We will be heading to the Tree Pittsburgh greenhouse Wednesday, October 23rd for a tour starting at 10:00 am. Tree Pittsburgh is located at 32 62nd Street, in upper Lawrenceville. You may recall that Joe Davish, from Tree Pittsburgh, came to educate us in May with his program on tree planting and pruning. We will meet to carpool from the lot in front of The Ashley Homestore on McKnight Road (across from Ross Park Mall) at 9:20 am. We will grab a bite for lunch after the tour – location TBD! As always, friends and family are welcome! A signup will be available at the October meeting. Questions? Contact Program Chair Kate Colville at (412) 736-2062 or email@example.com.
