Cassina's tenth Annual Garden Walk
again celebrates the horticultural
beauty of the St. Simons coastal area. It offers an
opportunity for visitors to explore and enjoy a select and
seldom seen group of six of the Islands most inspiring private gardens. The name
of the tour was selected to recognize St. Simons Islandís cultural heritage by
spotlighting the tabby slave cabins, circa early 1800's, on historic Gascoigne Bluff and
their magnificent setting among the ancient oaks covered with tillandsia, or
Spanish moss. The cabins are maintained by Cassina Garden Club, Inc. Proceeds
from the Tabby & Tillandsia Garden Walk are used for the preservation
and maintenance of our historic tabby cabins and the surrounding
Interest Stop, will again be ACE Garden Center, which will have plants featured on
