OUR MISSION

Plants are essential in so many ways. BloomCatch connects those who love plants with folks who love to grow ‘em. Our goal is to help you quickly identify your local native plants AND provide access to accurate horticultural expertise at the touch of a button. When you download BloomCatch, we invite you to join a growing community that is as enthusiastic about plants as you are.

OUR TECHNOLOGY

Combined with the power of human intuition, BloomCatch technology is a harmonious blend of man and machine. Our image recognition platform is designed for accuracy. Our technology uses machine-learning to continually grow our product and to instruct it to make more accurate plant identifications. 

OUR VISION

Because we love plants, we also care about what happens to them. BloomCatch is dedicated to supporting organizations that make conservation, environmental education, and sustainability a priority. Ten percent of every dollar that we earn goes to a charity that aligns with our philosophy- that plants are important for our lives and for the wellbeing of our planet.

 
OUR CHARITIES:
 
Washington Youth Garden

Washington Youth Garden, a program of the Friends of the National Arboretum, nurtures curious minds and healthy bodies by connecting youth to food, the land, and each other. Donations from BloomCatch will support hands-on garden and food education for 6,500 D.C. area youth annually at elementary school campuses and within the 446 acre U.S. National Arboretum.   

 
City Blossoms

City Blossoms fosters healthy communities by developing creative, kid-driven green spaces and innovative resources. Applying our unique brand of gardens, science, art, healthy living, and community building, we “blossom” in neighborhoods and schools where kids, their families, and neighbors may not otherwise have access to green spaces.
