Rosemary Beach Foundation presents An Evening With James Farmer

Published: Thursday, August 29, 2013 at 05:15 PM.

"If you have a plot or a pot you can grow herbs," he said. "All you need is a container or raised bed. You can control soil in raised containers. I use what's tried and true."

Farmer enjoys growing his own vegetables, but he also supports local farmers' markets to purchase what he doesn't grow.

But he isn’t a vegetarian.

"It's important to farm and there are some great butchers in my area," he said, adding that he grew up on a cattle farm.

At Rosemary Beach, Farmer will speak on bringing your garden to the table and into your home.

A reception featuring drinks from the designer's Sip & Savor is at 6 p.m., followed by his presentation and conversation. This will be Farmer's first time to speak in this area on the topic he considers his heritage.

"I feel fortunate to be able to do what I love," he said.
