UT Gardens were among several partners in the Labor Day Sunflower Project, begun in 2007 as a creative means of uniting a single neighborhood, but it has since grown to symbolize the unification of all of Knoxville’s disparate parts. Each sunflower signifies the reward of individual labors while the circle embodies the coordination of those efforts.

The sunflower project received media attention from the Knoxville News Sentinel.
