Garen is a pretty easy character to use and the reason I know that is because I can use him. Using him as a tank is awesome and you can almost guarantee yourself a win if you play him just right. He may need to solo to build up faster and if he does solo, be sure to talk your team into a gank often to level up faster. When taking out creeps use his Judgement ability to take out the six that come in a lane. Now this build is good for 3v3's so I do not know if this will work well in a 5v5 because I have not tried it yet. Once you get your Sunfire Cape you may feel free to jungle because once it is built up to work harder you will be able to jungle without actually swinging at them. When it comes to the Force of Nature, it is the one that I use the most however people with really strong ulti's, you may want to look into Banshee's Vail. Also, if your team is doing well as far as attack strength goes then you can not get Infinity Edge and stay 'tank like' and get Randuin's Omen or maybe another Sunfire Cape or some other form of Magic Resist item if you are against people that have high magic power like Ryze. Also, if you are wondering why I have 1 too many items up there, is because at some point in time you need to sell Doran's Shield. It is good for beginning game however after that it is worth nothing more to you than money. I hope this build works and please vote it for me so I understand whether or not this is a good build for Garen. Best of luck to you and Boiler Up!
