Augustus Jenkins Farmer III writes about plants, gardens, farming and life. A renaissance plantsman, he fell in love with the natural world while growing up in a family of artists, musicians, and farmers. Jenks received his formal education in plant sciences at Clemson University and botanical garden design at the University of Washington.
For 20 years, he’s led teams to establish and plant the vision for two of South Carolina’s major botanical gardens. He is the former director of Riverbanks Botanical Garden and founding horticulturist of Moore Farms Garden. His designs for homes, museums, and businesses have received recognition and awards and have delighted hundreds of thousands of visitors with the joyful, easy exuberance of hand-crafted gardens.
An engaging storyteller and teacher, Jenks has a real talent for getting people of all ages and from all walks of life to go outside and get their hands dirty.
