“Inviting the Generations to the Table” with James Farmer

A professional garden, floral and interior designer, cook, author and lifestyle expert, James Farmer is a young, fresh voice for his generation. His love of Southern food, culture and cooking have put him at the forefront of the garden-to-table lifestyle. He developed an early appreciation for fresh, seasonal foods cooking at the side of his grandmother, whose Southern heirloom recipes he has revitalized for contemporary tastes. Whether he is planning the perfect summer picnic, using everyday items to create exquisite tabletops, creating drop-dead gorgeous wreaths or making his grandmother’s skillet peach pie, Mr. Farmer masterfully guides his audience through the art of elegant garden living.

Book signing commences at 1:00 pm.
