The Bloomers Island mission is to encourage the healthiest planet and healthiest people possible by teaching and inspiring young children about the magical world of gardening.
We believe that hands-on gardening education is the way to go, because when kids understand how things work, it empowers them to ask more questions and feel intelligent, which creates passion. Plus, understanding gardening or in a larger sense, agriculture, is to understand complex systems that include plant science, biology, healthy eating and environmental awareness.
And here’s the thing – our process can be done in a garden, a backyard, on a balcony or even on a windowsill. Every child can participate in our activities that encourage your child to blossom with a sense of accomplishment and ownership, and to learn that magic doesn’t happen overnight.
Our goal is to make gardening education fun for kids and easy for grownups.
All of our products and activities include a reward system to help keep kids fully engaged. The Bloomers Island gardening programs and products include extras from indoor and outdoor activities, healthy recipes, coloring sheets, science and technology activities, and storybooks which complement the growing process. Achievement badges and reward points give your children the incentives to continue taking good care of their growing plants specifically and the planet more broadly.
The adorable Bloomers characters are easy to fall in love with and provide the ultimate companion experience for growing plants and trees as well as to encourage healthy eating. Through our work with hundreds of schools and thousands of children we have shown that over 90% of kids will eat a vegetable if they’ve grown it.
