Grow your Just Living Sunflowers 

Thank you for taking the time to sow your sunflower seeds.


You have these seeds, because at some point in time we met, we may have exchanged a few words or had a lengthy conversation, whichever way our meeting looked, it was a small seed that was sowed.


These seeds you're about to sow are a reminder of Paul Kelly's famous lyrics "From little things, big things grow". We here at Just Living know this to be true and that's why we take the time to sow, nurture and grow flourishing relationships no matter who you are.

If you need a little reminder of who we are and what we do, please click this link, otherwise we wish you the very best with your sunflowers. Scroll down for instructions.
