BloomCatch began as an idea on a family hike. From these humble origins, that idea bloomed into an incredible group of people who believe that technology should provide access to accurate plant knowledge.
We are currently at 25% of our fundraising goal on WeFunder! We invite our community to help us achieve our next fundraising milestone and spread the amazing knowledge of Mother Nature.
We believe in technology providing everyone access to accurate plant knowledge.
We are providing a safe space where plantparents meet plantexperts and chat about their favorite houseplants.
We are doing this by partnering with local organizations and small businesses who believe in the restorative power of plants and sharing that knowledge with others.
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.
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.
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.
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 cultivates the well-being of our communities through creative programming in kid-driven gardens. 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.
RAY MAGEE, MBA
CEO / Founder
Ray is excited to lead the BloomCatch team. As a life-long nature enthusiast, Ray was hiking with his family when he was inspired to build a better plant identification App. Using his education in computer science and business administration, Ray launched BloomCatch, combining innovative AI with real human expertise. His experience includes over 10 years of public service and three years in the private sector. When not working on BloomCatch Ray enjoys spending time with his family, usually outdoors.
DIG INTO A GROWING OPPORTUNITY
Ray Magee wanted a better plant identification App that would accurately recognize plants when he went on weekly hikes with his family. He designed BloomCatch to maximize machine-learning, engage users in a community, increase regional plant recognition, provide a robust searchable database, promote connections to garden centers, AND offer friendly exchanges with live plant experts- ALL on a socially consciousness platform for a very affordable end user cost.
