The groundbreaking ceremony for a new heirloom fruit orchard recently took place at the Lost Corner Preserve in Sandy Springs. The orchard is a partnership between the city of Sandy Springs, the Sandy Springs Conservancy and two Sandy Springs Eagle Scout candidates from Boy Scout Troop 379. Lost Corner is a century-old family farm donated to the city by Margaret “Peggy” Miles following her death in 2008. The project will include a border fence and 14 heirloom fruit trees. Its funding was made possible through the conservancy as part of a program to support micro-projects to enhance city parks and Friends of Lost Corner, a nonprofit that protects and maintains the 24-acre park.
