The Big Sunflower Project: Raise Awareness with FREE seeds!
The aim of the Big Sunflower Project is to raise awareness of the rare neuromuscular conditions Centronuclear and Myotubular Myopathy. Team All About STEM have taken part for five years, it’s great fun for individuals, schools and STEM Clubs and a fantastic way to spread the word.
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.
The project welcomes participation from anyone. The only criteria for taking part, is that you are willing to have a go and to share your photos and stories with the project.
(One pack of seeds per participant)
Those taking part will be added to the project map. There are stories and photos there from the last six years as well as pages about how the project began and on growing and harvesting sunflower seeds.
Participants wanting to raise awareness of the project and of centronuclear and myotubular myopathy can download leaflets in the resources section.
