One of the speakers at the upcoming “Revolutionary Gardeners Conference” is Andrea Wulf.

Trained as a design historian at the Royal College of Art in London, Andrea Wulf is a fulltime writer. She is the author of four books and writes for a number of papers, including the Wall Street Journal, LA Times, and Financial Times.

She has lectured to audiences at the Royal Geographical Society and the Royal Society in London along with the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia and Chicago Botanic Garden among many others.

As a three-time fellow of International Center for Jefferson Studies at Monticello, Wulf is extremely familiar with American gardening history. One of Wulf’s books Founding Gardeners looks at Revolutionary America by focusing on the gardening of four of the Founding Fathers.

We are privileged to have such a powerful and passionate speaker here in Northern Michigan.
