Unlock The Potential
BLOOM! is the movement to improve the world through the power of plants. There is a natural world around us, but we don’t see the incredible potential just waiting to be unlocked.
Did You Know?
And there are a lot of plants to know – more than 400,000 species worldwide to be exact!
The more we know about plants, the more we can make a difference in the world.
Horticulturists are solving some of the world’s biggest problems.
People working in plant careers – known as “horticulturists” – are using their plant knowledge to solve some of our biggest challenges like feeding a growing world, climate change and clean water.
Plants are essential to our way of life.
Horticulturists impact everything from the air we breathe, to the fruits and vegetables we eat, to the beautiful landscapes and floral arrangements we enjoy.
You can find plant power in places you’d never expect.
“Green-collar” professionals, as horticulturists are often called, are making playing fields safer for your favorite athletes, creating the fabric in your favorite clothes, and making the world a happier place. That sure is a lot of plant power!
You Have the Power
BLOOM! is built for today’s youth – the next generation of game changers and dreamers – but there is truly something for everyone here. Whether you are a student, parent, teacher, youth program leader or organization, we encourage you to explore our resources to find your own plant power and discover the many ways you can change the world through the power of plants. You have the power to grow this movement and seed your future.
BLOOM! is powered by Seed Your Future, a coalition of horticulture industry companies, gardening organizations, schools, colleges and universities, public gardens, youth organizations and supporters united by their unwavering confidence in the power of plants to change the world.
