Jim Martin – Horticulturalist & Owner, Compost in My Shoe
Gardening Future Forward
The garden paradigm is morphing. Social, economic and health related factors are changing the way people, place and plants make up the fabric of a garden. With this change also comes new plant pallets, technologies and techniques, enriching the garden experience. Look closely into Jim Martin’s garden gazing ball as he challenges you to step out on a limb and till for new directions in this engaging and progressive gardening lecture event.
About Jim Martin
A founding member of the Charleston Horticultural Society and celebrated Lowcountry gardening personality, Jim Martin’s relationship with the land began on a dairy farm in northern Ohio. Caring for the soil was what they called organic farming.
A move to the Palmetto State at age 13 meant learning to garden in a foreign land. His 25-year career in horticulture is coming full circle with Compost In My Shoe. His lifelong relationship with the land is shared today through his garden design, boutique farming and teaching/consulting. His Compost In My Shoe is dedicated to growing and developing high quality produce,products and services while nurturing the life-giving bond we all have with the land.
