18th August, 11:00am at Fair Growing Green
Amps is a community of people who make and cultivate creativity in Dundee, working together to collectively build on the future of the city. We connect through events and projects designed to help establish links, showcase work and develop collaborations. Join Amps and help make Dundee even better!
We’re excited to extend an invite to our network to come explore Fair Growing Green, Dundee’s Unexpected Garden for Dandelion. At this informal opportunity to connect with one another over the summer period, we’ll hear about the project’s purpose, plans and legacy, followed by the chance to meet and connect with other artists, designers, makers and doers in and around the city. The garden then opens at 12 noon, and Amps are welcome to stay to chat with others and enjoy the garden and (hopefully) nice weather—feel free to bring a packed lunch!
Dandelion is an ambitious national community growing project happening over summer 2022, and Fair Growing Green is one of 13 Unexpected Gardens found across Scotland. Local partners (the University of Dundee, Creative Dundee, Dundee City Council and community group, Friends of Fairmuir) have come together to host Dandelion in the city, bringing new life and fresh produce to the former bowling green in the popular Fairmuir Park.
