Wollam Gardens’ first ever literary festival is fast approaching, and we are excited to share the long list of authors, activists, artists, historians, and researchers who have agreed to join us for the day. These talented speakers will guide the day’s events and work with attendees to examine our central themes of Grace, Race & Renewing the Commons.
The owner of Wollam Gardens, Bob has been growing cut flowers since 1988. Since then, he has devoted his time to growing local, sustainably harvested flowers on Wollam Gardens’ 11 acres. His efforts have helped to promote the importance of local flowers in the larger “locavore” movement. As most cut flowers are trucked and shipped hundreds and thousands of miles before they even reach the customer, Wollam Gardens’ Virginia-grown flowers serve as a model for what a modern, environmentally conscious flower business can look like. Bob splits his time between Wollam Gardens and Washington, DC, where he’s resided for 28 years as a community activist, husband, and father.
