James Farmer has been described as "A skilled and entertaining speaker, he is truly a young and fresh voice for his generation. Whether he's teaching how to plan the perfect summer picnic, using everyday items to create exquisite tabletops, creating drop-dead gorgeous flower arrangements and wreaths or making his grandmother's skillet peach pie, Farmer masterfully guides his audience through the art of elegant garden living."
