Plant Master Program
GrowIt! The Plant Community is a space where members can turn when they have questions about planting, plant care, or plant identifications. It works because at GrowIt!, some members have insight or expertise in some aspects of gardening, while others are experts in different aspects, and we've cultivated a place where people can come and ask questions, and Plant Masters generously share.
As the community grew from 3,000 members to 70,000 members, we put together a program of members with extensive knowledge and directed them to people that need their help. Our Plant Master program was born. The Plant Master program is a sub-set of GrowIt! community members that love to identify plants, answer questions and help others. All of the members have been vetted by the GrowIt! team based on their past contributions to the community and / or by completing our Are you a Plant Master quiz.
These members have answered thousands of questions and identified even more plants. And they do it to help spread knowledge and their love of plants. We do thank them along the way with small tokens of our appreciation -- plants, gardening supplies, and GrowIt! swag make its way to their doorsteps. We recently added an annual VIP trip for top contributors to the program. We host top Plant Masters at our HQ here in Chicago for a day and a half experience visiting Chicago's top gardens, eating a lot of amazing food, and collaborating together on the community development and of course, plants.
The 2018-2019 program was made possible thanks to our generous support from DRAMM, Endless Summer hydrangeas, and JR Peters.
