HISTORY AND ACTIVITIES

​The Pleasant Hills Garden Club was formed in 1940 by 14 women who wanted to create interest in and promote the knowledge of horticulture and floral design, to assist in the development of civic beauty, and to aid in local and national programs of conservation. 

In the last 75 plus years the garden club has served the community by donating funds and hard work to landscapes throughout Pleasant Hills. Members have provided and maintained plantings at the Pleasant Hills Library, the Pleasant Hills Municipal Building, Mowry Park, and the Let Freedom Ring Garden (located at the Bill Green Shopping center) to name a few  of their projects. Pleasant Hills Garden Club also helps in maintaining the A.W. Robertson Arboretum. The Inside Garden located at the Pleasant Hills Municipal Building in the foyer is a glassed in garden that is designed and maintained by the PHGC.

A Blue Star By-Way Marker was placed at the Let Freedom Ring Garden in 2015 to honor those that have served in the military. 

Each month (in the summer) a garden in the community is chosen by the PHGC as Garden of the Month. A Garden of the Month sign is placed in the garden for a month. 
 
The Pleasant Hills Garden Club also gives donations to Penny Pines, Pittsburgh Botanic Gardens, Phipps Conservancy, National Garden Club, Inc., Garden Club Federation of Pennsylvania, and the GCFP, District X
