Harvesting & Drying in Progress
The Himawari Project team join the harvest celebration at Magnuson Community Garden on October 1st, 2011 and received the sunflower heads. It was a festive event at the beautiful community garden with the live music, the open-sky educational tables, and more activities. The team were able to harvest the sunflower heads and seeds with the children and parents while we talked about the Himawari Project and what we are doing.
Special thanks to Emily Bishton, Co-Chair of Magnuson Children's Garden Committee, and everybody who helped growing and harvesting the sunflowers!
We are in the process of drying the seeds, and soon will be packing and storing them to ship them to Japan. More update to come!
