Bonnie Dundee is a partnership between Dundee City Council, community groups, organisations and individuals from across the city who continue to support Dundee’s entry into the Beautiful Scotland campaign. There are a wide range of projects and activities each year throughout the city, from litter picks and tree planting to tending community gardens and planters. Those involved aim to help improve the built and natural environment for both residents and visitors to Dundee.

 

In 2017, Dundee City Council won the 'David Welch Memorial Award for Something Special' for the Dundee Flower & Food Fesitval:

The Dundee Flower Show goes back in various forms to the 1820s.The modern three day Flower and Food Festival is one of the largest shows in Scotland, and certainly is now the largest  of the traditional late summer/autumn shows which predominantly cater for competitive individual growers, most of them amateurs.  It regularly attracts over 20,000 people and has 400 competitive classes. Organisation is shared between the council and a range of local clubs including local allotment associations, chrysanthemum, dahlia and cactus societies, floral art clubs, beekeepers, winemakers and others. The show is very family friendly, with a marquee devoted to children’s exhibits, many mounted in conjunction with the Dundee City Council ranger service on environmental themes.
