Lee Ann and Glenn Heard

Even though Lee Ann Heard laughingly refers to herself as “the best weed farmer that ever lived,” it is obvious from her impressive garden that her green thumb affects more than just weeds. Her garden is a happy place, dancing with color year-round. It also reflects years of time spent learning the art of gardening.

A skilled and entertaining speaker, Farmer is truly a young and fresh voice for his generation.

James enjoys signing and selling his books at the end of his lectures. 



Gardens play a huge role in James overall career. He will discuss his first published garden which gained him much notoriety.

Edward and Tonya Reynolds

Edward Reynolds’ family roots run deep in Bainbridge, Georgia, but it was his mother Martha “Sug” Reynolds who first planted the seeds for his love of gardening.. First landscaped in 1958, the Nussbaum property boasted century-old oak trees, stands of mature azaleas, specimen plants more than 50 years old, 60-foot-tall Japanese magnolias, and a stunning view of Lake Douglas.
