The Trust of Public Land

The Trust for Public Land helps communities across the country protect the places that matter most to them—the historic sites, favorite hikes, and iconic views that preserve communities’ character and livability.  Lost Corner would not have been preserved without their help. TPL was instrumental in working with Ms. Peggy Miles to write a deed and raise funds that allowed her to give this property to the community with the vision she intended.  She wanted this property to remain as it had for hundreds of years and to be enjoyed by the residents of Sandy Springs.

The Sandy Springs Conservancy played the role of bringing together Ms. Miles, The Trust for Public Land and the City of Sandy Springs to secure the deed that makes Lost Corner a passive park that can be enjoyed by the residents of Sandy Springs.  FOLC is especially grateful for their generous grant that paid for our start up costs and first year’s operating budget.

We are very lucky that Farmer D is based here in metro Atlanta and thank him for his guidance, advice and consulting services that helped us with the community garden.  Lost Corner was a working farm in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s and we hope to restore some of the aspects of what life was like on the homestead through the community garden.
