The Big Sunflower Project distributed sunflower seeds between 2011 and 2020 to raise awareness of the rare neuromuscular conditions known as centronuclear and myotubular myopathy. Although the project no longer distributes seeds, people are very much encouraged to continue growing sunflowers and share photos of these online.
1. Buy a packet of sunflower seeds.
2. Plant a seed in a sunny spot, water regularly and watch it grow.
3. Take a photo of your sunflower and share on social media using #TheBigSunflowerProject.
