The Big Sunflower Project: Get your seeds here and raise awareness!
The Big Sunflower Project is now in its fifth year and the aim is to raise awareness of the rare neuromuscular conditions Centronuclear and Myotubular Myopathy.
How the project works:
Sunflower seeds are free of charge to anyone in the UK and Europe wanting to take part. Sadly they are unable to send seeds outside of Europe but all are welcome to buy their own seeds and take part too – the aim is to have sunflowers growing somewhere in the world all year round.
All the team asks for in return for the seeds are photos of your sunflowers to include in their online photo galleries and newsletter to raise awareness. They want to hear all about how your sunflowers grew and you’re welcome to take and send photos throughout the process. What a fantastic idea for a class or STEM Club!
