Fukushima Sunflower Foster- Parent Project
~Don’t forget Fukushima. Let’s create a bond between the people all over Japan and the people in Fukushima~
It is a great sadness that radiation caused by a nuclear plant accident has polluted Fukushima prefecture. People in Fukushima have suffered from earthquake, Tsunami, and nuclear power plant accident. Fukushima Sunflower Foster Parent Project has kicked off in order to plant sunflowers in soil in Fukushima as a symbol of the rebuilding of Fukushima.
It has been proven that sunflowers can absorb radiation from soil.
We need “foster parents of sunflowers” to raise sunflowers, harvest the seeds in autumn and send them to Fukushima.
This project also creates job for disabled people and for people who lost their jobs due to this big disaster in Fukushima.
Flow of this project
Our Purpose: To create a bond between Fukushima residents and people all over Japan, and speak out for the rebuilding of Japan with a symbol of rebuilding: The Sunflower.
-Encourage people in Fukushima with reports of the growing of sunflowers
-Get seeds and send them to the project organizers

“Sunflower, it is effective on removing radiation”
Mr. Tstsumi Sumi, (Elementary school of Tsukuba Univesity)
It has been proven that some plants have an ability of absorbing radiation with its root from soil
Sunflowers, especially, show a high rate of absorption.
It is said that Sunflowers can remove 95% of the radiation in soil in 20 days.
Normally, it would take about 30 years until the radiation level was reduced to a safe level. (Source: NTV, “The Most Useful Lectures in the World”)
