This event is free!


Each year, the highlight of the Friends of the Garden annual meeting is an interesting talk on nature or gardening. This year the Frinds Bring Jenks Farmer to the Garden.

Deep-Rooted Wisdom: Skills and Stories from Generations of Gardeners, Jenks Farmer's new book, draws us into the sage wisdom of those who have been gardening for decades and the charm of passalong plants, balanced with the science of recommended gardening practices and the inspiration to run outside and sink our hands into the soil. Jenks Farmer - young, Southern, and engaging - will tell stories of the eclectic mix of gardeners across the Eastern United States who shared their gardens and their knowledge in this book.

The evening starts with a reception where you can meet Jenks and chat with members of Friends of the Garden. After his talk stay to purchase the book and get it signed.
