Growing with Dandelion - Episode 3 released
In the third episode of Growing with Dandelion, Sunny Govan explores some of the Unexpected Gardens across Scotland.
Angus Farquhar, Creative Director at Dandelion talks about the vision of the gardens and how the project originated. We’ll also hear from the teams at Cove Park’s Argyll gardens, Taigh Chearsabhagh’s Uist site, Alchemy Film and Arts’ partnership with community gardens across Hawick, Alness’s Field led by Feis Rois, Forres’ growing plots in lanes across the town by Findhorn Bay Arts, Dundee’s Fair Growing Green on a former bowling green in partnership with University of Dundee, Creative Dundee and Dundee City Council, and Dandelion’s very own Floating Garden which is now moored at the Helix in Falkirk. Simon Preston, creator of the Town is the Menu will also talk about this locally-rooted food project and how it will become part of the Gardens’ Harvest celebrations this coming September.
We’d like to thank Angus Farquhar, Jill Lee, Sorcha Monk, Luna Issa, Simon Preston, Haley Shepard, Eva Zandman, Adam Csenki, Tania Kovats, Eilish Victoria, Ian Withers and Neil Butler for taking part. This podcast was produced by Sunny Govan Community Radio.
