The kit includes glow-in-the-dark stickers & a Discovery Booklet to learn about the magic of nature’s ecosystems.
Back to the Roots Co-Founder and Co-CEO Nikhil Arora, said “We think there’s nothing more important than inspiring a new generation to reconnect with where their food comes from. And just like other required school subjects – arts, english, math, and science – we believe gardening, nutrition, and learning about where food comes from should be a part of every child’s education.”
“That’s why we developed our STEM Gardening kits — we wanted to make it super easy & fun for kids, teachers, and parents to bring gardening into the classroom or home — no green thumb or big backyard needed!,” adds Back to the Roots Co-CEO Alejandro Velez.
“Back to the Roots are the only organic products of their kind to achieve our coveted STEM designation which has served as the industry standard for almost a decade. It is exciting to see gardening products designed with STEM in mind, as more than 20 million took up the hobby since the start of the pandemic. Enthusiasts from both movements can now learn more about each bringing more people into the fold as our brands collectively encourage inclusivity and healthy living,” said Andrew B. Raupp, Founder of STEM.org Educational Research™.
Back to the Roots also puts efforts into giving back by introducing gardening to elementary students around the country through their #GrowOneGiveOne campaign.When customers share a photo of their Back to the Roots garden on social media the company donates an organic grow kit and STEM curriculum to an elementary school classroom of the customer’s choice.
