James wants to get what's inside his head out into the world. This little corner of the internet is your personal connection to James' experiences and expertise.
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. Keep in touch by subscribing to his weekly newsletter at www.Jamesbatton.com.
Please join James for an entertaining and insightful approach to fruit pruning. He wants to provide you with the most aesthetically interesting trees while delivering a level of fruit production that will satisfy even the most novice of gardeners in their yield. Fruit production can be a lot of fun and the fruit enjoyed all year round.
This 4 module course provides instruction and recorded demonstration of pruning. Throughout the course, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and we'll have a live Q&A session with James the first part of March (date to be advised).
