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 –  at Dandelion #AnythingGrows

Unexpected Gardens

Floating farms, vegetable verges and carpark carrots – Dandelion’s Unexpected Gardens are sprouting all over Scotland.

Five people in a garden are smiling at the camera. There is a wildflower patch behind them and a wheelbarrow holding produce from the garden in the foreground. The people are smiling and holding different objects: a rake, a pitchfork, weeder, guitar and a super-8 film camera.


Join us for the oldest new festival in Scotland.  On 9 – 11 September, wherever you are, whatever your growing experience, you’re invited to be part of Dandelion Harvest.

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.
