"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 Northmont Church, 8169 Perry Highway, Pittsburgh, PA.
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

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 ?
A Message from our President
Dear Gardening Friends,
How blessed we were on Saturday, June 13th, to have blue skies, pleasant temperatures
and a GREAT turnout for our rescheduled Plant Sale. I want to
thank you all for your hard work digging up and caring for your plants, making
crafts, bringing in flea market items, helping with signage, advertising, set
up, sales and cleanup. For those of you who were unable to attend – we understand,
and know you were there in spirit and were cheering us on from
afar! Even without the sale of the hanging baskets and annuals, we made it!
Kudos to everyone for getting down to earth and diggin’ it!
All of our summer community gardening projects are underway and looking
lovely. Thanks for the many hands helping with these projects. We are looking
for volunteers for David Councill Park, Edith’s Garden and the Passavant planters, so if you have some extra
time to lend a hand, please consider doing so. We are currently investigating how we can be of help in our
community gardens by growing fruits/vegetables for the local community food banks. Be on the lookout for
upcoming information on how you can help.
The Picnic and July meeting are sneaking up on us NEXT WEEK, June 1st in Eileen Miller’s backyard. The
hospitality committee will be providing individual canned/bottled drinks, and desserts will be provided by club
members. We ask that you bring your own chair and lunch. If you have not already sent a RSVP to me, please
reply by Sunday, June 28th, so we know how many to expect. Also, this is another big fundraiser of ours, the
annual plant/garden related item auction! Come prepared with your items for auction, and your checkbooks/
dollars ready. It is a fun time, while raising much needed money for our club. While we did raise $2,500 from
the plant sale, we originally budgeted on raising, $3,300, so we need everyone’s help with the auction!. We will
be ZOOMING the meeting and Auction again, so let us know if you will be participating that way.
Stay safe and healthy ladies - and enjoy your time in the garden.
See you Wednesday!
Down to Earth and Diggin’ It,
“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need” Marcus Tullius Cicero
