Why would you plant sunflowers in a community garden?

I could understand if the community garden was right outside your house where you could see them from your window or when you go outside. In the city I work in, there is a community garden. I don't know exactly how it works, but I've seen lots of different people there weeding, planting and harvesting. The other day I noticed that someone has sunflowers planted. I just don't understand.

Can someone enlighten me?
Do you have a community garden?

  • They attract bees for pollination. The more bees the more pollination the more fruits & veggies you get :)

  • For beauty? Sunflower seeds?

  • Maybe for the seeds? We have several community gardens here in Chicago and I've seen beds taken up with lots of medicinal plants, as well.

  • My boss is part of our community garden and she planted sunflowers in one of her beds along with beside the community garden sign. She gave me some beautiful sunflowers for my birthday this year.

  • There's a community garden where I live, but it's more than a mile away, so I haven't investigated it yet. My daughter's preschool class went there several times to help out and also to look at bugs.

  • They could be the edible kind and would qualify as food.
