Rankin Park, Saturday 28 May, 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.

For our first Free for All, we’re bringing thousands of free plant plugs to Rankin Park on the south side of Greenock.

Across the road at Southwest Library visit Greenock's new Unexpected Garden: The Drying Green. We will have live music from our musicians in residence, garden tours, and a herbal tea station where you can mix your own blend.
