Chasley Bellomy, NACC Event Planner, said, “I first heard about James Farmer my junior year of college. His sister and I were at Auburn University at the same time, and I remember looking at her wedding pictures and thinking, ‘Who did those flowers?!’ Turns out, it was her brother, James. So since then, I have been following him on social media, through Southern Living and in the news. I really wanted the community to have an event in the late winter. If you are like me, I start having cabin fever in February and March and need a fun event to look forward to! I thought James would be the perfect fit for our community. He was raised in an area like ours and grew up on his grandmother’s recipes. He enjoys gardening, designing, planting and cooking. He has published seven Wall Street Journal’s bestselling books on these topics and has joined Hoda and Kathy Lee on the Today Show several times. Dr. David Campbell, NACC President, has been so supportive of my ideas, and it is something we have been very excited about. We hope the community will join us on campus February 27 for our first ever Sand Mountain Soiree!”
