My son has recently taken up a huge interest in cooking. He always wants to help me out while I prepare our meals, and he always asks a ton of questions about ingredients, technique, and just food in general. Part of his interest lays in fresh herbs used for cooking. Sure, I have tons of dried herbs in my spice rack, but I try and use fresh herbs as often as possible, as the flavors are fresher, cleaner, and much more intense than with their dried counterparts. Plus, fresh herbs bring an element of beauty to a dish. They are colorful and bright, and the aroma of fresh herbs simply cannot be reproduced using jarred herbs. My son has been learning the differences in herbs, and was quite excited when he learned about Growums, a line of at-home gardening kits what allow families to easily and interactively grow their own herbs and vegetables!
Growums are not your average garden kits, either! There are 6 different garden kits available that can be customized to the particular tastes of your family! Love Mexican? Try the Growums Taco Garden Kit, where you'll find everything you need to grow Jalapeno Peppers, Iceburg Lettuce, Tomatoes, and Cilantro! (I LOVE fresh cilantro!) Or maybe, like most families with children, you eat a lot of pizza...Well, instead of keeping your local delivery service on speed-dial, why not make your own freshly made pizzas with the help of the Growums Pizza Garden? In the Pizza Garden Kit, you'll find Roma Tomato seeds, Basil, Oregano, and even Bell Pepper seeds! Just think of the amazing, fresh sauce you'll be able to make from scratch in the comfort of your own kitchen! Growing up, I had homemade pizzas often, and I can definitely say that fresh is SO much better! Plus, while making your own pizza, you are in complete control of your ingredients. What does this mean to your family? Less chemical additives and preservatives, and more great flavors! Along with the Taco and Pizza Gardens, Growums also offers an Herb Garden, a Stir-Fry Garden, A Ratatouille Garden, and a Salad Garden! So with Growums, the culinary adventures are endless!
Another feature that makes Growums so cool is that once you receive your kit, you can register it online on the Growums website. Once you've registered, Fun-loving Growums characters come to life in a series of animated videos that show you how to properly care for your plants, from planting the seeds to harvesting your food. (You’ll even learn tips on what to do with your garden once it’s finished for the season.) Your Growums friends will help you keep track of each stage of your garden’s progress, so you won’t get lost along the way. The more you log onto Growums.com, the more points you can earn to use later on the site. It’s a fun and educational online experience like no other, and it’s a wonderful way to grow a successful garden – one character at a time!
Not only are Growums an awesome summertime activity that can be shared with children suffering from the summer boredom syndrome, they are also available for school and other fundraisers! I think this product line would be a big hit during fundraisers because of the nature of the product, (who doesn't love fresh herbs and veggies?!) as well as the kid-friendly design and ability to interact while growing these awesome gardens! I personally would much rather buy Growums kits than some sad little peanuts, sugar-laden candies, or wrapping paper during my child's school fundraisers!
Here is everything that is included in the Growums Herb Garden Kit:
So if you're looking for the perfect green family activity or wonderful addition to your upcoming fundraisers, Growums is the way to go! These kits are fun, educational, and let's face it: Yummy!
