“Like the sunflowers in the field when the light fades, we can turn to each other to gain connected strength.  For my immigrant grandparents, who were interned during World War One in Canada, let the sun shine on your faces.   And to my grandchildren, make your tomorrow be better than today!”
-  Michelle Loughery  International Master Muralist

"The Sunflower represents all nationalities that have had their freedoms and rights taken. As a symbol of strength, but also as a symbol of rebirth and creative energy to renew. 

Through conversation we can recognize those who suffered from these injustices and, through greater awareness, ensure that similar injustices are less likely to be repeated in the future as we work towards a new renewal of Canada."

The Sunflower is native to North America and was cultivated by Native Americans for multiple uses.  

 

The Arrowleaf Balsamroot is native to many places and is also known as the Okanagan Sunflower!

Tallest Sunflower as of 2014 is 9.17 m (30 ft 1 in) grown in Germany!

Young sunflowers use an instinctive action called Heliotropism to  solar track the sun.

Cultures around the world use Sunflower seeds as a food source, medicine, dye and oil.

 

Sunflowers are one many types of plants known to aid in the removal of contaminates in soil. 

Bee Aware - planting Organic, Non-GMO seeds supports bees!
