Seed to Sunflower Project

We’re offering children, already part of our Enrichment groups, the opportunity to take part in another virtual-home project. In your ‘Seed to Sunflower’ pack you’ll find sunflower seeds, a pot, compost and seedling pot, with instructions. The challenge will be to look after and grow the seeds into sunflowers over the coming weeks. There’s a link between watering and growing seeds into sunflowers and growing, building and looking after of the skills we talk about during our activities. I wonder if you can explain the link?

Kickstart Event

We’ll kickstart the project on Monday 3rd August at 1.30 pm using Zoom. If you haven’t heard of, or used Zoom before, it’s a video meeting program and app that you can download onto your phone, computer or tablet from the Zoom website:

Sharing Your Progress

You can upload your weekly photos of your sunflower (with you in the photo too if you want) using the link below. We’ll post a montage each week of these on our website and social media pages. You can find us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn. We hope you’ll be able to keep this going all the way to our next real-life activity on Saturday 19th September.

What you Need to Do

  1. Look out for your Seed to Sunflower delivery. Your group leader will call you if they need to so keep an eye on your phone too. If you’ve moved house recently, please let us know.

  2. Confirm your attendance for the Zoom kickstart event, scheduled for Monday 3rd August at 1:30 pm.

Get in touch if you’d like any support with any of this.

We’ll text and email you the Zoom link closer to the time with the link, meeting ID and password enclosed.
