"Growing Through COVID-19" is a feature documentary that follows Russell’s Garden Center in Wayland, MA through the beginning of the pandemic. Russell's has been in business for 144 years, It carries thousands of plant varieties and for decades has worked to show its local community the importance of being outside and the benefits of gardening.

In March of 2020, the family seriously considered shutting down their historic Garden Center forever. “Growing through Covid-19" honestly and beautifully shows what the Russell family did to keep their business running. During the pandemic's darkest hours, they help hundreds of new customers try gardening for the first time, and witness the grounding comfort their customers receive from getting outside and putting their hands in the dirt.
