Started in 2017 by Laura Langford to escape her dusty wood-shop in the hot summer months, Roam Flora is an ever-growing flower farm located in Ottawa, Ontario. Laura, a designer and furniture maker, started with flowers in the backyard, then added front yard, then neighbours' yards! After exponential growth, Roam has now expanded to a beautiful rural property still within Ottawa's city limits.
Roam Flora seasonally supplies local and organically grown flowers to florists and floral shops around the national capital region, along with a few lucky restaurants and commercial clients. Roam Flora also builds unique flower installations for brands and events, and takes on a limited number of weddings annually.
Roam Flora is committed to sustainable business practices. Not only are locally grown flowers much more sustainable and environmentally friendly, they are also very often far superior in quality compared to imports. Because blooms don’t need much shipping, varieties can also be marvellously unique, quite delicate and so, so beautiful.
