A downloadable garden for Windows and macOS

>>> Information and ways to help Ukraine <<<

---

Take a moment to tend to an online community garden, just outside of Kyiv.

---

Events occur roughly in the Ukrainian time zone (GMT+2).

The sunflowers in the garden have been planted and watered by the players that came before you. Once a sunflower is grown, it's added to the tally.

Each player is given 1 seed to plant wherever they like and the option to water up to 6 different flowers that have been planted by other players. 

After that, feel free to exit the game and check back later.

I'm gardener #4849!  I planted mine in the back left corner of the greenhouse.  :)

Long live Ukraine!  I hope this terrible war ends soon.

Gardener here, lets stay on the grind

thank you for this experience. I was wondering, where are the almost 5 thousand flowers? Are filled servers inaccessible?

I couldn't find anything about it when wandering about

Once the flower has grown completely, it's chopped down and a new one is planted in it's place. So 5k have been planted and grown only in the small handful of beds you can see.

Я хоть и русский(только местом рождения и жительства), но я всё равно остаюсь нейтральным. Довольно интересный и хороший проект. Можно отвлечься от всех проблем(не только связанных с ситуацией), наблюдая за цветами и слушая музыку. Рекомендую зайти хотя бы один раз.

how can you be neutral? I don't understand, I thought this was a very clear-cut conflict, either you are for it, or you are against it (and both can be active or silent)

Hi! I'm currently working at my job to program our upcoming annual Interactive festival and would love to discuss featuring this project, I sent you an email last week I don't know if you got it but please let me know!

Apologies! I seldom check my gamedev email these days. I'll remember my password and respond!

Hi!  I'm working on curating an interactive art exhibition and would love to feature this.  I've emailed you, but I'm not sure there getting to you.  Let me know if you're interested, and if so how to contact you! <3

Apologies. A lot of the email to that inbox ends up hiding in spam. I'll respond shortly.

Thank you!! No worries.  I've also been having email trouble.

sending love to all of those who are caught up in the Ukraine war

希望一切安好

gardener 2842 here. my entire family lives half an hour's car ride from the ukrainian border. those of slavic descent are well acquainted with war, and it shows in the way the people try to help. we look at our streets and imagine them on fire, but we do not have to imagine. they look the same as those of ukraine. so do the apartments, the elderly, the shops. we gather poppies to replace their sunflowers. at least here i can grow them instead

My heart broke at the sadness and tragedy of war and how much suffering there has been and will be until hope arises and ends this madness.  But there is a glimmer of joy in seeing a sunflower bloom and my heart and prayers are with the people of Ukraine.  You created a special and endearing game in support of Ukraine.  God save them and their beautiful country.  <3 

i was gardener 1434. i wish i could do more. i worked on a short film to promote awareness of this war.

i'm gardener 1374 my heart goes out to all of you, sending prayers and i hope the people affected are safe. ^^

was gardener 1340 thoughts and prayers arent much but they are all i can give to the brave ukranians 

was gardener 1333 :) a very sweet idea, much love to Ukraine!!

A wonderful game that proves that video games are an art and can be used to bring up complex topics. I thank the developer, and I urge people to be kinder.
