Seed Your Future, and our more than 150 partners, are creating a campaign to inspire and educate youth about the power of plants in our world. Based on a foundation of reasearch with middle-schoolers, their parents, their teachers, and their school counselors, we are launching a movement to build awareness of the field of horticulture and the rewarding careers it provides.
Teachers, parents and youth program leaders all have the power to introduce youth to the world of horticulture and the critical role plants have in our lives. In partnership with Scholastic, we have a free toolkit of engaging and educational lesson plans and activities.
Accessible at Scholastic's BLOOM! website are:
Student magazine highlighting horticulture heroes and profiling young professionals in green-collar jobs. (Download and share with your students!)
Classroom poster featuring cool green-collar jobs
BLOOM! classroom game with game board and game trivia cards
Our youth-centered website, WeAreBLOOM.org will launch in March 2018. We'll feature videos and other content to engage youth and help them understand their own personal plant power.
