International Sunflower Guerrilla Gardening Day
May 1 is traditionally a celebration of the first day of summer and natureís fertility. In 2007 guerrilla gardeners in Brussels (a.k.a The Brusselís Farmer) declared it International Sunflower Guerrilla Day. Ever since many of us around the world have planted sunflower seeds in public spaces and fought hard to help them reach towering maturity. Sow on the day or start early - do it for the joy of their incongruous beauty and benefits to wildlife. Sunflower Southwark
