“Cooking with the food you grow can be a very rewarding experience, and we are so excited to bring our team and our partners together to help everyone get excited about the spring gardening season and talk about how to take your efforts from plant to plate,” said Rebecca Sears, CMO & Resident Green Thumb at Ferry-Morse. “It’s no secret that many of us have been impacted by higher grocery costs, but growing your own vegetables, fruits and herbs at home is an easy way to still incorporate fresh ingredients into your meals for a fraction of the cost and even more flavor!”
