Event Description

Join us for an informal evening at Riverbanks Botanical Garden as South Carolina horticulturist and author Jenks Farmer reads from and discusses his new book Deep-Rooted Wisdom. The book explores the evolution of gardening, from how it used to be a simple and sincere part of life to how it has become more of a style competition, shopping experience and contributor to pollution and resource waste. Building on old-school lessons, Farmer weaves stories of wise gardeners with the most modern science and artful design to inspire gardening and living more gently for the earth and ourselves. Guests will be invited to enjoy complimentary refreshments, meet the author and purchase books. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. For more information, please visit
