An event was held on Saturday 24 March to celebrate the end of the Raasay Roots Fruits and Shoots project.

An application for further funding was unsuccessful.  However, the team behind the project are continuing to look for other sources of funding to ensure the garden continues to be productive.  

Raasay Walled Garden Facebook states: "Whilst this is a real blow following the huge progress we have made over the last year we are continuing to look for other funding streams and are discussing with the board of Raasay House Community Company (who own and manage the house and garden on behalf of the community) whether they can continue to employ a gardener until additional funding is found and / or in the absence of any other funding.

"We'll keep you posted on progress and we'll do everything we can to ensure that the garden continues to be productive.

"We'd like to say a huge thank you for all the support we've had over the last year and with our plans for the future from the community, visitors, Raasay Community Stores, Raasay House, Raasay Primary School, Raasay Community Hall, Raasay Distillery and Raasay Wood.
