Volunteer 11 hours in 2011
Valley of the Sunflowers-Students in the Fields
APizm says: 'Community Development Organization Roosevelt Row and the local Bioscience High School teamed up over three months ago to grow a field of sunflowers in a two acre vacant lot just across the street from the high school. The Bioscience students have played a vital role in the success of the project and have been working hard in every stage including the grading, seeding and grooming of the fields.'

If you have not been following my other iReports, here are the cliff notes on the Valley of the Sunflowers Project currently happening in Downtown Phoenix:
The Valley of the Sunflowers project will activate a 2-acre, vacant lot in downtown Phoenix and turn it into a beautiful field of sunflowers. The sunflowers will then be harvested by high school science students who will press the seeds for oil and create bio-diesel fuel for their hybrid solar/biofuel vehicle project.
