Williams-Sonoma is known for professional quality cookware and kitchen appliances. This summer, the brand goes beyond cooking to cultivating with its recently-launched Agrarian collection, which includes heirloom seeds, live plants, raised beds and even chicken coops. Plus, a new line of canning and preserving tools and accessories help customers preserve the best of summer. (Williams-Sonoma is even hosting canning classes at all of its stores in July and August).
