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

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
