Donaldson-Bannister Farm Updates
RIBBON-CUTTING AND GRAND OPENING OF THE DONALDSON-BANNISTER FARM
It’s official! Donaldson-Bannister Farm is OPEN.
This is an exciting moment for Dunwoody, bringing a lovely home and garden back to life for all to enjoy. We are so excited to open this beautiful property up to the public, after years of hard work and fundraising by the community of Dunwoody.
We were so happy to have Dunwoody’s mayor, additional city officials, as well as friends and volunteers with Dunwoody Preservation Trust on-hand to celebrate long-awaited opening of the Donaldson-Bannister Farm. This is a day that many people in our community have worked long and hard to make a reality. What a wonderful addition for the city of Dunwoody.
DPT MARKS 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF DUNWOODY TORNADO WITH TREE-PLANTING
Monday, April 9 will mark the 20th anniversary of the tornado that devastated Dunwoody and took down so many of our beautiful trees. To commemorate this date and to continue on the path that the Dunwoody tornado set us on in the creation of the Dunwoody Preservation Trust, we take this opportunity to plant 2 specimen trees on the grounds of the Donaldson-Bannister Farm at 10:00AM on Monday, April 9.
The trees are being selected from our landscaping plan for the Donaldson-Bannister Farm and will be a great way to commemorate the anniversary of the tornado that so changed the landscape of Dunwoody. This is a great opportunity for the Dunwoody community to join us at the Donaldson-Bannister Farm as we celebrate the re-planting of Dunwoody that brought DPT founders to realize the need for us to come together to preserve Dunwoody and to give us back our beautiful trees.
Come out to help us to commemorate the 20th anniversary and to see the beginnings of the landscape of the Donaldson-Bannister Farm.
