Closing out the Garden Club of Georgia's statewide Garden Week, Cassina's Ninth Annual Garden  Walk 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 grounds.

This year as an added  attraction, we are partnered with Glynn Visual Arts for two  wonderful exhibitions:    "Botanicals", is an engaging exhibition of watercolor paintings by Hillary Parker, noted international artist (at the Visual Arts new facility.)  Glynn Visual Arts is also making available for Walk goers, their unique "Fine Arts and Flowers" exhibit at the Chamber of Commerce building on Beachview.  In this exhibit, talented fresh flower arrangers pair their interpretive designs with paintings from a juried art show.   And once again, we'll host the Plant Sale of the Hamilton Plantation Garden Club at our cabins (8 am-2 pm) and our Southern Garden Party and Demonstrations at our cabins (2 pm-5 pm). 

Our Special Interest Stop, will be ACE Garden Center, which will have plants featured on the Garden Walk and other great gardening ideas.
