Sunflowers are Back

It is a great season to visit Founding Farmers Tysons. Our sunflowers are back and in-house through September. 

We love welcoming guests to our Tysons restaurant with our bounty of sunflowers. Each year, we harvest these beauties with our friends and sustainable partners at Sweet Virginia, a non-profit working to educate children about the wonder of honey bees and their importance in pollinating and maintaining food diversity for every living creature on the planet.

On the Sweet Virginia farm in Nokesville, VA, they grow bounties of sunflowers, zinnias, and dahlias in their honey bee sanctuary. This year, our very own Samantha Brett took a day trip out to the farm and got to pick our sunflowers from Sweet Virginia’s bright and sunny flowering fields. 

As a company where sourcing, sustainability, and educating our guests whenever possible matters, our partnership with Sweet Virginia is a great fit. Their mission to share sustainably-sourced practices and educate elementary school children about the magic of honey bees with programs like their interactive Hive Alive Curriculum and the upcoming launch of their “Bee Liner,” a traveling bee-mobile, are what make Sweet Virginia’s efforts so important.

We are happy to have our sunflowers back. Last summer, because of the constant and heavy early-summer rains, the seeds were washed away and we weren’t able to have our annual burst of summer. But we are psyched to see them again. For our guests, the honey bees, and the planet.
