Harvest - Dandelion


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.

From islands, to villages, to towns and cities, everyone is invited to take part in Dandelion Harvest.

Visit a Harvest Celebration

Come along to an event in one of our 13 Unexpected Gardens across Scotland for live music, poetry and spoken word performances, storytelling, mural painting, cook-alongs, film screenings, craft and creative workshops, parades and ceilidhs - each location has its own unique programme and the whole family is welcome! Find details of these events below.

Dandelion has also supported 44 local community organisations around the country to make their own Harvest celebrations this September. From veg-growing community football teams, to cook-ups in community allotments, apple harvesting and pressing, the chance to make seaweed fertiliser or get hands-on with jam and chutney-making – these rooted celebrations of Harvest are sprouting across the country from the Orkney Islands, to Stirling, from Fife to Oban and down to Dumfries and Galloway. Find out more here.

If you can’t make it to an event you can “grow your own” with the help of our resources, and come together with friends, family, colleagues or community and join the hundreds of others celebrating Harvest across Scotland. Find out more here.
