So this years’ project is over, but I signed up for next year. Basically, they send you sunflower seeds, you plant them, then you watch them grow and see how many bees visit your sunflowers during given small amounts of time.

The data you collect from your sunflower will be a start. It will provide an insight into how our green spaces in the urban, suburban and rural landscapes are connected as well as shedding light on how to help pollinators.

and you get seeds at the end! mmmmm….
