Anything Grows.

In 2022 we’re growing in luminous cubes.

We’re growing in schools, growing up lamp posts, on islands and in cities. We’re growing to music and seeing if that makes things grow faster. We’re sharing what we grow, swapping dishes and hosting new look harvest festivals. We’re not just growing in gardens, but in paint pots and milk cartons and anything else you can stick some soil in. Experience doesn’t matter. Neither does age, ability or whether you’ve done anything like this before. This is about coming together to grow, create, share ideas and misshaped veg.

This is Dandelion. A year for whoever, however and whenever because, this year, absolutely anything goes grows.

Something different is taking root...

Dandelion is an ambitious creative programme demonstrating the power of collective action and to rediscover our connection with the food we eat and the joy of sharing what we grow and cook with good music. Led by the next creative generation.

Rooted in Scotland, with an international outlook and sustainability at its heart, the Dandelion programme follows the arc of the growing season, from April to September 2022, and will culminate in hundreds of Harvest Festivals across Scotland.

Experiments in tech accelerated growing collide with dirty growing methods across a new season.


Let’s make it up as we grow…



Dandelion takes a unique approach to community growing, bringing together artists, makers, scientists, performers and technologists to present events and programmes across Scotland – from its remotest islands to the centres of its great cities.
