This is a wonderful cause dear to my heart.I have 3 family members that have had Depression wreck their lives.One member is once again homeless & in & out of inpatient hospital treatment.It breaks my heart.I have planted sunflowers in honor of this cause-will send photos later when they bloom. I hope all of u will do the same to honor Depression. :-):-):-) Debby

Sunflowers have always been my favorite....I have (without success?!) tried to grow them from seed for the past couple of years...a 'green thumb' friend offered that they needed to be in a place with more sun....and so I will plant in full sunshine location...Love this project -- brilliant work and concept!!!
I am going to work with iFRED and plant a sunflower patch in our front yard!
Hey George - Good luck with your sunflower patch! If you need any tools you can visit our toolkit, http://www.ifred.org/ourwork/fieldforhope/activation. Thank you for supporting iFred and Field for Hope!
