Chloe Norgaard has loved wildflowers since living in Texas when she was three, where her parents would find her eating flowers in the garden. Her mom would take her and her brother for picnics in fields of wildflowers. Lately she has been spending a lot of time in cities and noticed that one big thing is missing: NATURE! Chloe's wish is to see colors, plants, and flowers everywhere, not only for the aesthetic value but also for the benefit of the Earth and its inhabitants, especially the butterflies and bees!
Chloe has graced runways and magazines internationally and is now studying at The New School. She loves to travel and colors (which is evident in her ever-changing array of colors in her hair). Chloe invites you to plant flowers EVERYWHERE, while making this world a brighter, happier, and flourishing habitat for our pollinators and all of Mother Nature's beautiful creatures.
After attending the School of the Visual Arts in New York City. Cole Miller served as partner and creative director for a leading NYC based 360-degree experiential marketing firm, managing and producing high profile, first class events for a number of Luxury Brands and Fortune 500 companies.
He was a founding partner in The House restaurant in Manhattan’s Gramercy Park, which prides itself on farm fresh local ingredients and an innovative artisanal cocktail program. The House, to this day, remains a highly successful, neighborhood favorite.

With a love for nature, and saddened by the terrible colony collapse of bees, Cole decided to use his extensive resources to provide awareness and action for these critically important and extremely fascinating pollinators.
After discovering a mutual passion for nature and art with his good friend Chloe Norgaard, the two created Wildflower Boom.

Bees are some of Earth's most important organisms, yet they are threatened by habitat loss, pesticides, and disease. New York Bee Sanctuary protects bees while helping New Yorkers connect with their environment. Find out where you fit in!
