We Dig Dunwoody!
We are an enthusiastic group of lifelong learners brought together by a common passion for gardening. We love to dig in the dirt and share lots of laughs along the way. Have a look at what we have coming up and if you are interested in joining our garden club, simply get in touch today or even better, come to one of our meetings. We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, September through May.
A Message from our President
Welcome to the Dunwoody Garden Club website! Our club started over 50 years ago in unincorporated Dunwoody with just a few people coming together to do what they love. Little did they know that it would grow into the thriving garden club it is today. Our dedicated members enjoy monthly meetings, field trips and garden projects. We also contribute to many groups through donations with proceeds from our annual card party fundraiser that includes a luncheon, fashion show and silent auction. The Dunwoody Garden Club mission statement is "...to promote and stimulate the knowledge and joy of gardening among it's members and the Dunwoody community and to sponsor civic, welfare and community gardening projects as agreed upon by a majority of members". Passion and enthusiasm go hand-in-hand with everything we do.
Newly retired and a new master gardener, I joined the Dunwoody Garden Club in 2010 looking to learn more about gardening and meet others interested in gardening. 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 or someone is in need - the Dunwoody Garden Club is all over it!
Our door is always open to new members, no experience required. We are proud to bring together people from all over Dunwoody and beyond. If you are looking to make some new friends, learn more about gardening and get more involved with the community, come join us at our next meeting. In the meantime, take a look at our website for more in-depth descriptions of what our club offers as well as upcoming events plus much, much more. Be sure to scroll your mouse over any garden club picture for activity details. Click the join us tab to submit an interest form or complete the form in the contact us section at the bottom of this page with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
President, Dunwoody Garden Club
Learn Something New
Our monthly meetings take place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from September to May and are something that our loyal and dedicated members always look forward to. We socialize for a bit, then have a short business meeting followed by a guest speaker or other garden related activity.
Several times throughout the year, we take field trips to interesting garden sites and garden centers such as Oakland Cemetery, Gibbs Garden, Smith Gilbert Gardens and the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Field trips are taken on the 3rd Wednesday of the month.
Dig in the Dirt
Our club has four primary garden projects that we maintain. As a group, we meet at one of our project locations, usually on the 4th Wednesday of the month, to weed, plant, water, etc.
