For the last six months, we’ve been asking you to sow and grow with us. For #DandelionHarvest you came together over one big weekend to share.
Explore The Town is the Menu
What would your town - or street, school, or community look like on a plate?
Food innovator Simon Preston has worked with a network of Unexpected Garden’s over the arc of the growing season to explore and develop a menu that truly represents them. Using local produce and produce grown within the gardens as the basis and the stories and memories of local people.
FRIDAY 9 – SUNDAY 11 SEPTEMBER 2022
Since April, we've been inviting everyone to sow and grow with us. Now we invite everyone to come together and share over one big Harvest weekend. The sharing of food to mark the end of the growing season is marked in different ways around the world. This year, we’re marking that moment as the finale of Dandelion, with hundreds of events in our Unexpected Gardens, schools and community spaces across the country.
Dandelion Harvest brings people together for community meals made from food grown in that community or sourced locally, live music and long conversations, swapping stories and sharing the produce. It’s the moment to mark a year of growing – and plan for the next.
Get involved on 9-11th September. Find your nearest Harvest on our digital map – or host your own homegrown Harvest with friends, family, colleagues and community. Check out the resources on our Host a Harvest page.
