Programme - Dandelion


A futuristic looking stack of growing cubes is stood in a ravine by a waterfall. It is lit up with a yellow and pink light and the space around it is lush with greenery. A large tree to the left is covered in moss and ivy. Two people stand with their backs towards the cube, looking at the light reflecting in the waterfall behind.

Indoor farms and outdoor festivals, alleyway allotments and schoolchildren scientists – Dandelion will be across Scotland this summer. Join us.

Heisgeir - Film

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.
