Seed distribution for The Big Sunflower Project 2017 is now underway and will continue until around mid June or until our seed donations run out. The project welcomes participation from anyone. The only criteria for taking part, is that you are willing to have have a go and to share your photos and stories with the project.

  1. What a beautiful idea! I’ve emailed you to see if you would like to partner with us for our forthcoming art exhibition on Vincent Van Gogh, because we wanted to fill the railway station with sunflowers and have the art growing up out of them. It would be just wonderful to have your organisation’s aims promoted through our sunflowers to give it all an extra layer of meaning. Really hope we can work together on this touching project!
