 Cassina Community Projects

Our major project is the preservation, maintenance and beautification of the club’s historic slave cabins and grounds

Since 1932, the care and maintenance of the former Hamilton Plantation Slave cabins and grounds has been entrusted to Cassina Garden Club. A recent restoration of the tabby walls of the cabins was accomplished through a grant from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and with funds raised by Cassina’s fundraiser efforts. Maintaining this site’s gardens and the interior of the cabins is an ongoing project.

Cassina members participate in the annual island clean up days. Information on other beautification projects is shared.

Adopt-A-Tree—Care of the State Champion

Southern Red Cedar

The Garden Club has provided signage, care and tours at the site of this grand Cedar located adjacent to the Cassina garden property. Cassina has also been responsible for replacing a number of Oak Trees on the Cassina grounds as well as in the community.

 Docent Project

 Gascoigne Bluff and our Hamilton Plantation Tabby Slave cabins are an integral part of the Docent Program of the Club.  The cabins are open throughout the year for the Epworth Elderhostel programs, to tour groups by appointment, and for the Christ Church Spring Tour of Homes. They are also open to the public each Wednesday morning June through August.  Moreover, these facilities also give school  groups a glimpse of earlier days and provide various garden groups an opportunity to see the flowers and plants of this historical era.
