Gardeners in the Carloway district are opening their gates this weekend to raise money for charity.

The green fingered group is raising the cash for a home grown cause - to convert the former Carloway School into a community hub.

The six gardens on show between 11am and 5pm this on Saturday range in size - from the quite large to smallish. Some grow mainly flowers while others focus more on vegetables

Techniques include permaculture, organic growing, hydroponics, raised beds, shelter belts, growing under plastic and netting as well as growing raising vegtables for showing.

The gardeners will be on hand to answer questions, provide plant care tips and just talk about the subject.

Entry is £5 per adult with free access for children for the tour of all six.

People can pick up a map and pay at the café in the old Carloway School annex on the main road beside the churches in the centre of the village.

The café is open for home cooked lunches, teas and cakes in the afternoon.
