The Ferry-Morse® Gardening In School Program

Why plant a school garden? School gardens are an effective way to promote life-long healthy eating habits and connect students to the natural world. Gardening provides educators with opportunities to enhance student education through practical, reality-based learning. We're here to help foster gardening in school by offering a special program for schools and teachers to have better access to the seeds and supplies that make it happen.

About The Gardening in School Program

Ferry-Morse is dedicated to fostering gardening in schools. We understand the value that a garden can provide for students and want to make this a more accessible opportunity for schools wanting to grow gardens for their students.

To do this, Ferry-Morse is offering special Gardening In School discounts to schools that want to grow gardens! This special discount can be used site-wide on vegetable, flower, and herb seeds as well as gardening tools and supplies. All you have to do is contact us at info@ferrymorse.com and we'll provide a discount code for you to use on your purchase.
