The 2012 growing season was terrible. Our Growums suffered, as did our entire garden. As such, while the folks at Growums were able to get 600,000 kits into the hands of kids across the country, they didn't end the year as well as they would've liked to...
These fun kits are educational and offer a multi-platform approach to learning the ways of gardening. Through all-inclusive kits available in six themes (Taco, Salad, Pizza, Ratatouille, Herb, Stir-Fry), kids can grow their own garden from seeds, then track the progress online while learning even more. The next phase of Growums development includes some enhanced video content, and to get the ball rolling, they've set up a Kickstarter Page with some awesome perks you can get if you help the cause. Your contribution will be rewarded. Watch Growums creator Michael Ferraro's pitch below:
Mike's Dad (featured in the video above) taught him how to garden, just as I'm teaching my daughters now. I support Growums, and hope that you will too.
