most natural helpers in the garden. After all, gardening gives them a

excuse to have fun in the dirt. But more importantly, gardening is a

most natural helpers in the garden. After all, gardening gives them a great
excuse to have fun in the dirt. But more importantly, gardening is a great way
to educate children about the importance of keeping green and saving the
environment. That’s why Floral Marketing Solutions has developed the perfect
kit to get kids interested in gardening: The Budding
Gardener.

Floral Marketing Solutions’ mission is to increase environmental
awareness and educate the young. With this in mind, the company is proud
to announce its Plant-It for the Planet Earth Day Campaign. This is an
initiative focused on creating the next generation of Budding Gardeners, both
indoor and out, in as many Canadian homes as possible. 

Advertisment

Floral Marketing Solutions’ first step as part of this campaign is to put
as many of The Budding Gardener kits as possible
in the hands of children. These kits are a fun and educational
introduction to organic gardening for kids and include everything they need to
start their own indoor garden including a biodegradable pot and saucer, seeds,
soil, and lots of exciting accessories. Kids will also have access to an
interactive website www.forkids.ca/buddinggardener where they can
log-in to their own personal account , keep track of their growing results and
participate in various learning activities. 

To deliver The Budding Gardener
kits, Floral Marketing Solutions is teaming up with a number of schools across
the country. While learning about organic gardening, conservation, and the
environment, these students will also be growing the perfect gifts for Mother’s
Day.

Additional information is also available at www.floralmarketingsolutions.com.

The Budding Gardener (retail $9.99) is available at Home Hardware
stores across the country.
