A little bit about James

Over the past 40 years, James’ storytelling style of teaching, lecturing and guiding has entertained and instructed all ages.

He has taught, presented, performed on stage, in the gardens and around camp fires since he wrote his first production at 16. However, his love of people and nature doesn’t stop on the stage, he has a keen ability to support others as they navigate interpersonal and relationship challenges. He attributes his wisdom to the concept, “everything I know in life, I learned from a tree.” 

Additionally, he has been a columnist, garden guide and published writer utilizing his abundant knowledge in horticulture and landscaping. You may have also seen his smiling face on TV, in a commercial or even in one of those greeting card movies. James loves to share his passion for life, gardening and the healing gift of nature. 

You can always find him on social media, teaching at Red Butte Garden or offering virtual classes and courses.

James publishes a weekly newsletter featuring wisdom from the trees, tips and tricks for the garden, recipes and more!
