Dandelion Grants for Growing Open

This partnership between BEMIS and Dandelion has been developed to support and celebrate community groups and organisations who want to start growing their own food across Scotland, and to create opportunities for diverse communities across Scotland to take part in the Dandelion Harvest Festivals in September.

Join your families, friends and neighbours across a long September weekend for Harvest parties the length and the breadth of Scotland. There’ll be wonky veg and bucketloads of soup, live music and lively conversation, games and activities and… well, whatever else you’d like to bring to your local event, presented by Dandelion but hosted by you. Come together and celebrate a year of growing unlike any other.

How to Apply for Grant
If you’re part of a community group or other organisation and you’d like to present your own Harvest celebration in September, you can apply for one of the Dandelion Harvest Grants. The grants programme, in partnership with BEMIS, contains two different funds – and you’ll need to apply by midnight on Friday 20 May
