Sea Pines Men’s Club History
In the fall of 1999 Paul Grier and John Fraser, A past President of Community Services Associates (CSA), met to discuss how to utilize the new Sea Pines Community Center. The Sea Pines Women’s Club had been organized and was off and running so it was felt that the men should also have a club. Grier had been an officer in a Men’s Club in Wyckoff, New Jersey and suggested we adopt a similar format for Sea Pines. He contacted Joanne Santos and Jacqueline Carbiener who had organized the Women’s group to get details on the club had been set up.
On March 8, 2000, the first planning and organization meeting was held with Tom Hall, Dan Olenchuck, Russ Lamperman, Joe Eagers, and Paul Grier.
On March 21st a kick off for membership was held, and in the following weeks 40 new members signed up. The first social was a wine tasting at the Community Center arranged by Frank Cascio. After six months of working with CSA and the cable company, service for the Big Screen TV was available at the Community Center and a Super Bowl Party was held in January 2001.

Heritage Farm Association
The Heritage Farm Association (HFA) is a community garden comprised of about 100 Sea Pines residents who share a love of gardening and maintain the Farm. As well as helping with maintenance, for an annual fee one can rent various size plots (approximately 15’ x 15’ for a quarter plot) to grow your own fresh veggies and flowers. There are twelve different work crews involved with the Farm which provide members various opportunities to assist or pay a fee to opt out.
What can you grow at Heritage Farm? Perhaps you have noticed the variety of vegetables from tomatoes to zucchini or lovely roses and colorful zinnias. The Farm orientation program will provide you with a comprehensive list of vegetable growing seasons for our Coastal Plain region. Farmers who specialize in growing flowers are always willing to provide helpful tips. This is one of the wonderful benefits of being a community of gardeners.
The Heritage Farm also has four plots dedicated to charity. These sections are worked by association members for local food banks such as Deep Well and Second Helpings. The work begins with starter plant donations from The Greenery. In the past Hilton Head Prep students have volunteered to harvest sweet potatoes as part of their community service. The Hilton Head Herb Society often makes a generous dollar grant to help with Farm needs. As you can see it is a multi-faceted effort to provide fresh veggies to struggling families during difficult financial times.
Gardening at Heritage Farm is always popular and at present there are only a few plots available. Typically new farmers do not start during the heat of August, but wait until the fall. The HFA fiscal year runs September through August 31st so more plots become available in mid-September if some current gardeners opt not to renew. Please contact Katherine Perry after September 15 regarding information on becoming a gardener and perhaps schedule an orientation to review guidelines and review available plots. Her phone number is (843) 715-2120.
