Bonnie Dundee is a partnership between community groups, Dundee City Council, businesses, organisations and individuals from across the city. Enthusiastic volunteers are involved in a wide range of projects and activities each year including tending planters, litter picks, encouraging biodiversity and community gardening. Those involved aim to improve the built and natural environment for both residents and visitors alike. Bonnie Dundee and its partners are supporting the Year of Young People 2018, aiming to involve even more of Dundee’s youth in the campaign and help celebrate their contribution to Dundee by providing opportunities to input their skills and get involved.
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.
