Hello! It's a pleasure to get to introduce ourselves to you.
We are Janet + Charles Harding of BLOOM.
Charles and I both had career shifts and the stars aligned. Bloom was born out of our mutual love of everything flowers and gardening. For us, BLOOM is a verb. It activates the beauty & passion, seeing & celebrating all that is good in nature.
Our other love is community, and BLOOM for us brings it all together. With people at the center of what we do, we work hard to do the right thing and honor each individual as important and worthy of our respect & trust. It is important for our employees and customers (our community) to feel valued, appreciated and free to be who they are.
We are proud to work in a way that is designed to prevent discrimination against any people regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, neurodiversity, disability status, citizenship, or any other aspect which makes them unique.
We look forward to sharing this love of community, flowers & gardening with you.
On a personal note, Charles and I have been together for 24 years. We have five children and three perfect grandchildren! Charles is on the Board for the Wichita Community Rowing Club, and Janet has just completed the Master Gardener Program and is on the Executive Board for the Butler County Extension Service.
Last important thing — we love dogs (& we love cats), especially when they come say hi while we are digging in your dirt. ♥
