28 MAY – 23 JULY 2022
Our Free for Alls are travelling Scotland this summer, giving away thousands of free plant plugs to anyone who fancies having a grow.
Free for Alls are Dandelion’s mini-festivals of growing, touring between May and July: from Hawick to Helensburgh, Govan to Leven. You can just turn up on the day with no need to book, and both admission and plants will be – yes! – absolutely free.
We’ll give you everything you need to get growing in seed beds and plant pots, gardens and window boxes: wherever you can and however you like. Our friendly Growing Team from Scotland’s Rural College will be on hand to help you get started, and novice growers are especially welcome! And we’ll also be joined by our Flower Singer – at five metres tall, a truly unmissable sight…
Join us at your nearest Free for All to get growing. And then when summer turns to autumn, come together with the growing community at your local Harvest to share what you’ve grown this year.
Vertical farms and experiments on the move – discover our glowing growing Cubes as they travel across Scotland.
Free weekend-long festivals in Glasgow and Inverness bookend the summer with live music, theatre, plant giveaways, workshops, talks, science and arts.
468 schools, 114 Grow Cubes, tonnes of tatties – welcome to the biggest growing experiment Scotland’s ever seen.
In car parks and in playgrounds, on streets and in squares, this is a Harvest celebration unlike any other.
Our story begins with our launch film in April 2022 – not in the city, a town or even a farm, but on a tiny island in the very far north-west of Scotland.
