Dunwoody Garden Club Welcomes You
Message from Our Club President
Welcome to the Dunwoody Garden Club website. Our club started in unincorporated Dunwoody over 50 years ago and, even though Dunwoody is in our name, we have members from all our neighboring cities – Chamblee, Brookhaven, Sandy Springs, and Peachtree Corners. We even have some members who moved from Dunwoody to Newnan and Canton but still love Dunwoody Garden Club and remain active with us.
All are welcome to join our club – to make new friends, to learn more about gardening, and to give back to the community. It is a fun-loving group with some who have gardened for years, some who are new gardeners and some who are just thinking about taking up gardening. We even have members who do not currently keep a garden but who want to join in the fun! No experience required!
The Dunwoody Garden Club’s mission is "to promote and stimulate the knowledge and joy of gardening among its members and the Dunwoody community and to sponsor civic, welfare, and community gardening projects as agreed upon by a majority of the members”. We do this through our monthly meetings, field trips, garden projects, and donations to many groups. The donations are made possible by the proceeds from our annual fundraiser – a gala card party, luncheon, fashion show, and silent auction.
I joined the Dunwoody Garden Club in 2010, newly retired, a new master gardener, and looking to learn more about gardening and meet other gardeners. I felt so welcome immediately, and have since forged many wonderful friendships. It is one of the greatest groups of women that I have ever known - caring, funny, and high energy! If something needs to be done, if someone is in need - the Dunwoody Garden Club is all over it! In addition I have learned so much from our monthly programs and from our members.
So if you are looking to make some new friends, learn more about gardening, and get more involved with the community – please come to our next meeting and see if we are a good fit.
President, Dunwoody Garden Club
Learn Something New
We hold our monthly meetings on 2nd Wednesdays from September to May and these are truly fun meetings that we look forward to. We socialize, conduct a short business meeting, and then have an informative and entertaining guest speaker or other garden-related group activity. Meetings are usually held at Dunwoody's Annex, 4470 N Shallowford Rd.
We go on multiple field trips during the year to interesting garden sites and garden centers such as Oakland Cemetery, Gibbs Gardens, Smith-Gilbert Gardens, State Botanical Garden of Georgia and the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Field trips are taken on the 3rd Wednesday of the month.
Dig in the Dirt
Our club has four continuing community garden projects that we maintain: the main entrance gardens at Brook Run, the planter in the Dunwoody Library atrium, the Dunwoody Library main entrance gardens, and the accent landscaping at Windwood Hollow Park. Work days are the 4th Wednesday of the month and we meet at one of these sites or a new one to plant, weed, water, etc.
