About

Hi! I'm Gloria, born and raised in Redlands CA, and I offer gardening enrichment classes and subscription boxes for children. I have worked as a preschool teacher and elementary paraeducator for 14 years. I have over 30 units in early childhood education. ​In 2018 I earned my BA in Public Relations. Before I started Sprout and Blossom, I previously worked for a children's garden, where I wore many hats from managing the social media to creating fundraising events. I also created and implemented curriculum for various programs on site. ​I have created Summer Day Camp programs, Outdoor Learning Days, and other programs to get children into the garden and outside enjoying what nature has to offer. ​Technology is great, there are so many wonderful resources, some of which I use for supplemental activities. However, I believe nature is better! I believe that children, now more than ever, need to get outside to play, learn, grow, and explore.
