Sunflowers For Ukraine

Our Urban Sunflower Field in 2021 was a huge success. Now sunflowers have even more meaning. The Sunflower is Ukraine's National Flower.  Pocketparks is planting sunflowers in 6 park locations around St. Louis in support of Ukraine as a symbol of resilience and peace. Half of the profits will be donated to Ukrainians in need through the GlobalGiving Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund, half will support Pocketparks' mission to reduce vacancy in St. Louis.

Beautify St. Louis while supporting Ukraine.
