Cassina Garden Club

Formed in 1928, Cassina is the oldest garden club in Glynn County.  Our founders’ objective was to “promote love of gardening among amateurs, to protect native shrubs, trees, flowers and birds, and to encourage beauty.”  These remain our guiding principles to this day. 

Today we are a garden club of approximately 130 dedicated members, 90 of whom are active in the plans and programs of the Cassina Garden Club.  Since 1932, a principal mission of Cassina has been the preservation and beautification of the club’s two tabby slave cabins and grounds.  Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988, these cabins serve as the Club’s meeting place. Since 1985, the "Christmas Tour of Homes & Gardens" had been the club’s major fundraiser to support this historic treasure.  

In 2007, the club enhanced its ability to provide for the continued historic preservation of its tabby slave cabins by hosting its first annual "Tabby & Tillandsia" Garden Walk in May.  In 2008, the club  added a very successful Garden Market to its popular Garden Walk weekend. And in 2009, a juried Photographic Competition and Exhibition, "Flowers" was added.  Most recently, following an intensive assessment of our historic Cabins by one of the nation's leading historic restoration companies,  Cassina is in the midst of a $400,000 cabin restoration effort, entitled "Cabin Fever".
