Augustus Jenkins Farmer
Augustus Jenks Farmer's vision for reflective, soulful gardening guided gardeners, craftsmen, volunteers, and scientists to create two lauded public botanical gardens as well as art museums, city parks, and private enclaves.
His connoisseurs' nursery promoted the renaissance of the crinum lily, a forgotten, beloved plant of early American gardens. Today, he ships organically grown crinum lilies all over the country.
He's listed as one of Garden & Gun's most interesting people and regularly featured in Southern Living. While his focus is on sub-tropical gardening in the South, he's written for international journals, appeared in John Deere commercials around the world, and writes for popular magazines and lectured across the U.S.
