All About Sunflower Roots & Shoots

Service Project

Each year, members choose a different service project focus. Last year’s service project was a partnership with Delray Beach Children’s Garden. Members worked hard throughout the year, and were proud to have a strong role in the birth and development of the beloved DBCG.

GO! Meetings

One meeting each month is a GO! “Get Outside!” meeting. Started by Children & Nature Network, GO! is a national youth-inspired, youth-led initiative to rally people of all ages to get outside and spend time in nature. Shooting Stars explore local parks and nature preserves or at Sunflower, in our Learning Garden and nature playscape. Last year, members explored Delray Oaks Natural Area, Wakodahatchee Wetlands and Leon M. Weekes Environmental Preserve in Delray.

Parent Responsibilities

Minimum Parent Requirements
Because this is a free club, your volunteer participation is appreciated. For at least one meeting during the year, e
ach family must provide a fruit snack for all the children (or contribute the money for Sunflower to provide the snack). There will be a signup sheet at the meetings, so you can choose your week. 

Parent Attendance at GO! Meetings
For all GO! meetings, parents must either attend with your children (not a drop-off event) or assign another parent friend to be responsible for them during that time.
