Schools and groups

This experiment is perfect for schools and groups, and we will be publishing an education resource pack soon. In the meantime, if you are a teacher or run an educational or community group and would like to get involved, please contact us. We are particularly keen to hear from you if you have already developed some resources that you'd like to share more widely. You can find out a bit more about the experiment here.

Sunflower seeds for schools

Free sunflowers seeds, flyers and event posters were sent to all Greater Manchester Schools. The experiment has been incredibly popular and the 27,000 seeds that we have distributed including 9000 courtesy of Manchester City Council have all gone! We hope many of them will flourish

Sunflower seeds can be bought from your local garden centre for as little as 75p for a packet - find out more on what, where and how to plant.
