Our New President

Ann Ferguson : Ingomar Garden Club President  2016             

Dear Ingnomar Garden Club

This is 2016-2917 is a new beginning and "GROWING FORWARD" gives us all many opportunites.  Seasons change and so do we.  Our gardens change and so do we. This is another growing time for our club and for me.  I have met so many wonderful women in IGC and now I follow in their shoes.  It is a privilege to work together with all o  you.  My name fills the presiden's slot but you are what makes this club go forward to what it is and will be.  This new year gives us a continued chance to grow together andd support each other.  I will need your support.

As Ken Druse has said so well,

"Growing Forward - Gardens, like the gardeners who nurture them, change with time. Vines climb skyward through the years.

Trees, the most vunerable of all plants,  through the cycle of their lives and many will be here after we are gone.  Gardens move (like my plants from Franklin Park to Sherwood Oaks in Cranberry Township.)  Planting beds become filled with roots; shade appears where there was once sunlight.  As I grow older I find that I am focusing more on less-individual prized plants close to the house, for instance.  And I've come to rely on and find a new appreciationfor, self-sufficient varieties chosen, to grow beside the paths walked less often.

Thank you for this opportunity to humbly learn to serve you and grow forward,

Ann Ferguson

From the President - October 2019

Linda Womsley

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 robjcolville@msn.com.

Share the Season,
Linda
