"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.
The Christmas cactus, Schlumbergera bridgesii, blooms later and has smooth stem segments that are smaller and scalloped along the edges. Its growth habit tends to be more pendulous or drooping.
The Thanks giving cactus, Schlumbergera truncata sometimes known as Zygocactus, or claw cactus blooms several weeks before the Christmas cactus. It has stem segments with strongly toothed or pointed edges that make them appear claw like. This cactus also appears to grow a little more upright.

The Ingomar Garden Club presented a Standard Flower Show!
Sept. 9, 1pm to 7pm & Sept. 10, 9am to 1pm
Sherwood Oaks, 100 Norman Drive, Cranberry Twp.
A Standard Flower Show is an educational experience, displaying
the design talents and horticultural abilities of the garden club members.
Welcome! The roots of Ingomar Garden Club were planted in 1946 by the late Maude Seibert of McCandless Township and have produced a strong and vigorous service organization that has improved the lives of many in the Pittsburgh area. We are very proud to serve this community!
Members of IGC have been responsible for planting thousands of trees over the years. The group has maintained two public community gardens, held over 40 garden shows, conducted annual plant sales, and taught both young children and senior citizens the joy of horticulture.
As the new year unfolds, we look forward to sharing our projects and programs with you! IGC pours into the community with numerous civic endeavors. Annual scholarships, horticulture therapy, nursing home outreach, Junior Garden Club in Hampton Township School District, Novice Organic Garden Club in North Allegheny School District, Hartwood Acres planting, David Councill Memorial Park garden, "Edith's Garden" at Northland Library, Garden of the Month, bi-annual flower shows, North Hills Community food drive - just to name a few
Celebrating 50 years Stone Mansion, 1996
What a lovely place !
What a lovely day !
What a lovely time was had by all ! Chelo Farina was our hostess. Her gardens are beautiful to behold in every direction. The "picnic" food was gormet and bountiful. And what would the IGC picnic be without our own Kay Womsly, auctioneer extradinaire. The auctioning of our treasures at the picnic is a tradition and everyone takes home just about as much as they bring, only it used to belong to somebody else. Does that makes sense ?
After seventy years, we are the real pros at hosting a community plant sale.
Sunshine and "shades" says "super sales for sure"
It doesn't get any better than this!
