Raasay Walled Garden was recently awarded funds from the Climate Challenge Fund.
The award will fund the employment of a full-time gardener and part-time Community Engagement Officer. It will also fund the purchase of equipment and seeds, needed to enable the supply of fresh local produce to Raasay Community store and R&B Distillers.
The year-long project aims to involve all of the community, all of whom are welcome to purchase produce, volunteer or visit and attend events in the garden.
More information will be available approaching the project's start date, 1 April.
To celebrate the achievement, Raasay House are offering a tasting menu for Raasay community and the Raasay House guests. The six course tasting menu will include matched wines and the R&B Distillers "Raasay While We Wait Whisky". The event will take place on Saturday 4 March at Raasay House.
