Steve Devloo is sharing his passion for gardening with his 3 year old daughter and other children her age. 

The Stamford resident spent time with preschoolers at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center, helping them plant their own seeds.  However, these seeds are different than others.

"I wanted to make something fun, so I came up with BloomPucks," said Devloo.  

He created BloomPucks while starting his own green company, Earthworm Technologies, a year ago.  

"These are actually title puck-like disks with a proprietary combination of these organic worm castings, as well as seeds, depending on the line, minerals and other things that we add to it," said Devloo.  

He says the pucks go right into the soil.  All it needs is a little water, and it's as easy for the oldest gardener as it is for the youngest.  

"My daughter has grown these and every day she wakes up and she wants to go out and two or three days later, that little seed starts sprouting," said Devloo.  

Devloo's mission is encouraging others to plant their own annual and perennial flowers and herbs.  The company also produces organic fertilizer by composting.
