Post in Community Groups & Events by Fiona Baverstock
You just can't help but feel good seeing Sunflowers! Vibrant and hopefully tall!! We have seeds for everyone and you can pick them up from Garve Public Hall or Aultguish Inn on Saturday 18th May.

Give it a go and get GROWING  !

It's fabulous to see all your pictures from previous years and seeing everyone having a go  from all ages, beginners and experienced. You have inspired me I'm going for it too !

This is a fantastic inter-generational activity to share with family members and friends.  A fun way for young ones to learn about science, nature and caring for other living things and also everyone that loves a bit of competition! You can grow them indoors or out to suit your circumstances. 

Sunflower seeds can be picked up anytime from the blue box at the front door of Garve Public Hall or at The Ladies Lunch at Aultguish Inn on Saturday 18th May 12-2pm.

I can't wait to get mine planted!

There are prizes for:
The tallest sunflower (ground to tip of petal)
The widest flower (petal to petal)

1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes for each category of £40, £30 and £20 respectively.

Email us your photos from the planting stage to 20ft!! and everything inbetween.  
Final date for sunflower measurements is Friday 30th August 2024. Please email your pictures to Contact Fiona
Best of Luck !

I would like sunflower seeds, please. If anyone from the lunch group or Garve Hall blue box is going past The Auld Church in the near future could they be dropped off? There is a blue box on my doorstep too!     Thanks in anticipation, 

Pam Morrison.
