Ikebana is an art form used for the arrangement of flowers. It had its beginning with Buddhist priests in India, was adopted in Korea, then China, and then Japan in 540 AD. It is now practiced through over a hundred chapters throughout the world. Ikebana International was founded in 1953; its motto is "friendship through flowers."
The Columbia chapter received its charter in August of 1974. The chapter holds most of its meetings at the Columbia Garden Club Council Building at Maxcy Gregg Park on the third Wednesday of each month at 9 am, from September through May. Visitors are always welcome.
