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

I WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE SOME SEEDS. THANK YOU MUCH
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!
I planted in my sunny office window! Won't you join me?
Awesome kit - thanks for sharing and planting HOPE!
Melissa, that's an awesome kit for just $1!!
These are just my personal ones - Target. ;-). MeckLINK is planting a whole garden on May 31st! Press Release in draft form and will be going to SMA late this week.
Melissa that's a nice kit.Thank you for planting for this wonderful cause.!!!
Even though I'm not at home yet, my Hubby told me yesterday that the seeds he planted for me are already SPROUTING! Hope blossoms silently.
Carolyn - thanks so much for taking the Pledge to Plant! We hope you'll take pictures of your sunflower as it grows to share with us!
I have been planting sunflowers since 1999 - I look forward to watching them grow every year - hopefully this will be a great year for my seeds and they will be as beautiful as they have always been!!
The journey is long, the journey is hard, but in the end the journey is worth it. Never lose hope and remember with every down comes an up.
Will plant three sunflowers on Mother's Day with my daughter. Thanks for all your hard work and bringing such critically overlooked issues to light. :-)
Hey Amanda! I hope you got your sunflowers planted yesterday. Thank you so much for supporting Field for Hope. Make sure you take pictures as your sunflowers start to grow! We'd love to see them!
Going to the plant nursery this weekend to get our sunflowers for growing. My depression is a constant reminder of this entangling plague, which has had a grip on me as long as I've been alive. I hate this... (Sorry, in a funk right now). Thank you Kathryn and Mel for inviting me to be part of this. I like it.
