With the 21st century, technology has certainly enhanced our lives and has made the flow of information, media, news, and communication instaneous and continuous. Of course, too much of a good thing can be bad. Many people, including children , are staying indoors more and losing touch to some extent with nature, the environment, and the need and benefit of new experiences. Cynthia Wylie is doing her best to address these issues through her company called Bloomers! Edutainment. Rather than fight technology, she is embracing it and combining it with the wonders of nature, gardening, science, and education.
The Bloomers! Mission is to bring the magical world of gardens, flowers, plants and nature to life, in exciting new ways for young children. Bloomers has a great interactive website located at www.BloomersIsland.Com. It also has some great projects and products available to schools, day care centers, camps, parents, and others who want to help teach children about the wonders of gardening and science through hands-on projects. Whether it is an order of seeds or an entire kit including planters, soil, seeds, and tools, Bloomers is a great resource to help children create a garden and have fun along the way.
Cynthia wanted to make sure that the products could be used by anyone interested in teaching a child about gardening and plant life. In particular, Cynthia wanted to make sure that the kits could be used by children with limited to no green space including but not limited to children in urban areas and the inner city.
As noted by Cynthia, "There is a certain satisfaction one gets when there is a glow in the child's eyes through the learning experience from our gardening projects."
