Who taught you to garden?
In the past, gardening knowledge was handed down from generation to generation. The essential skills necessary to create productive, beautiful gardens were passed from teacher to student and parent to child. Today that chain of wisdom has been broken and some of the old skills and techniques are in danger of being lost. Our connection to the earth and to the simple joy of gardening is being lost along with them.
Augustus Jenkins Farmer, or just Jenks, did learn to garden from his elders. He had dozens of mentors, including friends, family, and teachers, who taught him low-tech, commonsense ways to plant, propagate, water, and fertilize. In Deep Rooted Wisdom, Jenks uses his natural storytelling ability to pass on the art and science of gardening to you. With Jenks as your mentor, you will learn how to create modern gardens and reintroduce yourself to the wonders of the natural world.
Augustus Jenks Farmer’s vision for reflective 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 plant of early American gardens. He’s listed as one of Garden & Gun’s most interesting people and is regularly featured in Southern Living. While his focus is on subtropical gardening in the South, he’s written and lectured internationally.

Descripción Timber Press (OR). Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Paperback. 248 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.6in. x 1.1in.Augustus Jenkins Farmer (aka Jenks) started gardening in the third grade in a corner of the family farm filled with rocks, scrap metal, crinum, and spider lilies. He was free to dig, transplant, and design in any way he wanted by making do with what he had. Thirty years later, he continues to garden this way in his own gardens in Columbia and Beech Island, South Carolina. His style of gardening is in stark contrast to the gardening industrys steady stream of new products, new advertising, and new rules that create unneeded complexities, intimidateing future gardeners and obscuring the joy of gardening. Deep-Rooted Wisdom is Farmers antidote to this corporate-driven model of gardening. In it he shares the traditional skills and techniques he has learned over the years from generations of gardeners, like gardening with pass-along plants, harnessing the natural power of worms and mushrooms, saving heirloom seeds, and making handmade garden structures out of available materials. Along the way, he introduces us to a cast of unforgettable characters, like Yvrose Valdez, a woman from Haiti who uses legumes in lieu of fertilizer, and Bennett Baxley, who has a 20-acre yard filled almost entirely with scavenged plants. Deep-Rooted Wisdom is garden mentorship at its best and most honest, showing us all a way back to a more joyful, simple style of gardening. This item ships from multiple locations.
