Bught Park, Saturday 23 July, 1–4pm

Our Free for Alls are travelling Scotland this summer, bringing free plants to anyone who fancies having a grow. Join us for mini-festivals of growing – with performances, advice on how to get started and free plants for all. You can just turn up on the day with no need to book, and both admission and plants will be – yes! – absolutely free.

Swing by Inverness’s largest park for our final Free for All giveaway, where thousands of plant plugs will be looking for new homes.
