4th Annual International Sunflower Guerrilla Gardening Day

This Saturday is the 4th Annual International Sunflower Guerrilla Gardening Day! So grab yourself some sunflower seeds and get plantin'.


  • Date: Saturday, May 1, 2010
  • Time: 10am to 10pm
  • Location: ALL OVER THE WORLD! Give us your poor-quality, tired-out, empty masses of ground longing to be green!


  • Look for public spots that are looked after, but not carefully maintained. You want your sunflowers to grow without the threat of getting pulled up.
  • Dig a small hole using your finger, a pencil, a trowel, etc. The hole should be about an inch deep.
  • Drop in your sunflower seed, and cover the hole with dirt.
  • Watch in eager anticipation as your sunflowers sprout and grow!

These fan-freakin'-tastic flowers will attract butterflies and bees, and are certain to bring a smile to everyone who comes into contact with them.

If you want an accomplice, er... partner in crime, uh... I mean friend for your clandestine sunflower planting, let D.C. Guerilla Gardeners know. We're great at accomplicing.

  1. I have a nice amount of sunflower seeds in case anyone needs any. I collected a SINGLE sunflower head last year from Titan, my monster at Mr. Yogato, and I've been trying to share the seed all spring. I still have a few hundred left, however...
