“The following day, we had the entire St John’s Primary School through, it was soooo cute seeing them LOVING the flowers and really engaging with what we had to say about them. They had some great questions too – so clearly they were interested and listening.
Just yesterday we had the Business Studies class from the local Area School and the Horticulture Class too. They were years 12 and 13 and their enthusiasm was next level! They were both looking at the sunflowers through different lenses of course and that in itself was great as I was able to talk about the numbers and the potential to diversify further (sunflower tourism) with the business students. And the how, why, when, etc with the Horticulture class.
The joy the Sunflowers have brought to the region is something we never anticipated. It sure is fabulous for work satisfaction so if all goes well, and we get a decent return we’d like to continue growing them.”
