First ever sunflower festival gives seeds to the community

Growing Together had hoped that by now St Agnes would be covered in beautiful bright sunflowers for their new festival.

Unfortunately, the community can't currently get together to admire each other's blooms, so instead, Tom Knight, from Growing Together, has come up with an alternative.

He still wants people to join in with the new festival, but, from the safety of their own homes.

Tom has created the ability for those in the St Agnes area to get their own Growing Together sunflower growing kit online, for free.


The kit includes instructions, magic compost and sunflower seeds.

There were 451 sign ups by the 7th of April and if you live in the St Agnes area, you can get your hand on a pack too!

‘I am delighted that so many households have signed up for St Agnes Sunflower Festival 2020. Together we are going to fill our villages with sunflowers!

We all need something joyful to look forward to at the moment. I hope that this project will bring people together in spirit at a time when we have to stay apart.’
