Dandelion - Unexpected Garden: Greenock

8 - 21 August, 2022
28 April-11 September RIG Arts are transforming a space behind South West Library in Greenock. From an unused scrub site, The Drying Green will become a shared space for nurturing plants and stories. Named after the communal laundry areas shared by tenement buildings throughout Scotland – the places where communities grew close through games, leisure and shared childcare. Instead of clothes pegs and washing lines, watch tendrils and vines unfurl next to new public sculptures, and a community created mosaic. This is a plot for people to grow their own produce and swap ideas, a story-growing garden hosting special events and community activities open to everyone. Events: Dandelion Mosaic Workshop-1pm-3pm: (7 weeks from 6th May) Work with artist Alan Potter to create a brand new mosaic floor for The Drying Green, our new garden. Taking inspiration from local stories and heritage, you’ll decide on the overall design of one of the garden’s key visual elements – and then across seven weeks, you’ll learn how to cut and place recycled materials, working on your own and as a group to make a range of motifs and images. Please visit Dandelion.Scot for the most up to date information about the events at the garden.

Charity Garden Opening - Glenarn

8 - 21 August, 2022
Glenarn survives as a complete example of a ten-acre garden which spans from 1850 to the present day. There are winding paths through miniature glens under a canopy of oaks and limes, sunlit open spaces, a vegetable garden with beehives, and a rock garden full of surprise and season-long colour, with views over the Gareloch. The famous collections of rare and tender rhododendrons and magnolias give way in midsummer to roses rambling through the trees and climbing hydrangeas, followed by the starry white flowers of hoherias and eucryphias to the end of the season.  A new feature is our Silent Space at the top of the garden. This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
