Imagine the street filled with colourful sunflowers. In front gardens, outside shops, on street corners - wherever there is a small patch of earth. If you like the sound of that come along to one of our sowing sessions and plant sunflowers in the community greenhouse or take a seed kit home to try in your garden, windowsill, front garden - anywhere that gets a lot of sunshine!

Once they’ve grown nice and tall we’ll have a community planting session June to create a vibrant sunflower trail through the borough.
