Grapevine Garden Club was established in April 1960 by 20 enterprising charter members with the stated purpose “to further the members’ love and knowledge of gardening.” We were originally affiliated with The Pittsburgh Garden Center, however the affiliation with the Pittsburgh Garden Center has gone to the wayside over the years.
Currently, active membership is limited to thirty (30) members, with meetings held the second Wednesday of the month, September to June (except January being a by month). Meetings are at members’ homes or various local venues, daytime (12 o’clock) and evenings (5 o’clock). Many meetings feature expert speakers on topics of gardening, flower arranging, native planting, sustainable gardening, and recycling for our earth to name just a few. We are known for our tomato plant sale at May Mart/Spring Mart, being one of our several fundraisers. For membership information please contact Beth Davis, firstname.lastname@example.org
Grapevine lovingly and diligently cares for a local Sewickley village park, Walnut Street Park. It is a small parklet in the heart of the village that offers a quiet spot for the community. We continue to lobby for our village green space by making both a financial and sweat equity annual improvements. We are privileged to participate in the biennial SCGC Garden Tour and annual May Mart. Grapevine is also committed to supporting local conservation and beautification projects. We have a very active group with multiple committees (Membership, Hospitality, Grants/Charity giving, Walnut Street Park, May Mart, Sewickley Garden Council and Poinsettia Fundraiser).
Members love to have a great time and connect with one another and to that end, we have two celebrations each year. We celebrate the Holidays in December with a member luncheon, and a fiscal yearend (often a theme gathering) in June extending the invitees to the members’ significant others.
