Kids can choose from six fun kits including Herb Garden, Pizza Garden, Salad Garden, Stir-fry Garden, Taco Garden and Ratatouille Garden to grow a real garden with virtual world fun. Each garden kit features unique, magical coco or peat pellets that make planting and growing practically foolproof.

Kids can choose from six fun kits including Herb Garden, Pizza Garden, Salad Garden, Stir-fry Garden, Taco Garden and Ratatouille Garden to grow a real garden with virtual world fun. Each garden kit features unique, magical coco or peat pellets that make planting and growing practically foolproof.

Kids start by going to Growums to register their garden and follow the colorful characters in a virtual garden world that shows them how to care for their vegetables. This animated step-by-step series of mini videos are updated every ten days with tips on what to expect next and how to care for the seedlings. With a little help and information from Tomicio the tomato, Frank Cilantro, Belle Peppa, Ice Berg the lettuce wrapper and, of course, Elvis Parsley and more; in a matter of weeks kids will be able to harvest fresh vegetables and herbs to create nutritious meals. Weekly emails also alert children to next steps and explain topics including watering, weeding, growth cycles and more.

We were sent the Pizza Garden Kit.

The whole process is extremely easy. First, place the pellets in a container.

The kit comes with the seeds needed and the labels so you know what you put in each pellet.

Add water to the container and the pods will expand. Add seeds to the pods.

Put the markers in each one as you go and get ready to watch it grow!

This next step is very important, so listen carefully -

**put the container out of reach from small children and dogs**. Take it from my personal experience - they will destroy it. We never got to watch ours grow because my dog got the container and then Isabella messed with the pellets/pods. Evan was so upset, so I'll be giving him some of my seeds from the garden and we'll make him a garden in a huge pot.

At only $9.99, I think these kits are a great idea and a fun way to teach kids to grow their own garden. What makes it even better is that when their garden grows, you can help them use their plants to make dinner. Not only does it teach them how to grow, but it also gets them to eat their veggies because what kid doesn't want to eat something that they had a hand in creating?

Visit Growums to learn more and to view all of their kits. Growums are available online and at independent garden centers across the country as well as for use as fundraisers. For every Growums garden kit purchased through a fundraiser, a generous portion goes to the child’s school or organization and the company donates a portion of proceeds to feed needy children.
