The Garden Writers Association (GWA), the professional association of U.S. and Canadian gardening communicators, has honored Ferguson Caras PR as the 2013 recipient of its Wilfred J. Jung Distinguished Service Award. GWA honors one allied trade member annually that, as a company, has promoted gardening in North America, helped expand the profession of garden communications and supported the overall objectives of GWA and its membership.
Ferguson Caras, headed by husband and wife team David Caras and Sally Ferguson, specializes in public relations for gardening, horticulture and outdoor living clients.
“Ferguson Caras has been a vital partner to the horticultural industry for more than 25 years. It has actively promoted gardening in all its facets and has always supported the Garden Writers Association in every possible manner. This is an award well merited,” says GWA President Larry Hodgson of Quebec City, Canada, a garden writer and president of HortiCom, Inc.
The first PR agency to receive the Jung award, Ferguson Caras joins an impressive list of 20 prior honorees since 1992, including Proven Winners, All-America Rose Selections, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Chanticleer, Fiskars, Gardener Supply Company, Longwood Gardens, Miracle-Gro and Burpee Seeds.
