Ferry-Morse to Host Garden Get-Together Facebook Live on First Day of Spring
Ferry-Morse, one of the oldest and largest home gardening seed packet companies in the U.S., announced its first annual Garden Get-Together will take place on Sunday, March 20, the first day of spring, on Facebook Live. The virtual event welcomes gardeners of all experience levels to come together to celebrate spring gardening season and learn from interactive demonstrations hosted by popular gardening creators, as well as Ferry-Morse’s experts. The event is free and will take place from 2-3:30 p.m. EDT on the Ferry-Morse Facebook page.
“The gardening category has welcomed millions of new gardeners in recent years, so this is a way we can share information and inspiration to set them up for a successful growing season and help them truly enjoy the process,” said Rebecca Sears, chief gardening guru for Ferry-Morse. “We’re excited to bring together our team as well as a group of some of the most engaging gardening creators from across the country to provide our tips and answer questions in real time for those looking to garden.”
Viewers tuning in to the Facebook Live can watch informative and inspirational demonstrations and conversations from Ferry-Morse as well as the following creators and experts:
- Marcus Bridgewater of Garden Marcus, gardening in Texas in Zone 9a
- Megan Gilger of Fresh Exchange, gardening in Michigan in Zone 5b
- Fanny Liao of Fans in the Garden, gardening in California in Zone 10b
- Pamela Reed of Brooklyn Farm Girl, gardening in New York in Zone 7b
Whether participants are new to gardening or experienced green thumbs, the spirit of getting together to garden will come through in all aspects of the broadcast as well as with the focus of giving back. In honor of the event, Ferry-Morse will donate $5,000 to Big Green, a nonprofit dedicated to mobilizing millions of people to grow their own food, in support of the Million Gardens Movement.
“Our mission to empower people to grow their own food is made possible by support from companies like Ferry-Morse that likewise believe that the more people we can help dig into gardening the happier and healthier our world can be,” said Kimbal Musk, Founder and CEO of Big Green and the Million Gardens Movement.
