Old Allangrange and Black Isle Brewery market garden Open Day

04 September 2021, Starts: 14:00, Ends: 17:00

Saturday 4 September    2.00 - 5.00

We're participating in the Scotland's Gardens Scheme which is opening beautiful private gardens in Scotland to raise money for charity through admissions, teas and plant sales.

You can visit our garden at Old Allangrange on September 4th from 2-5pm. Adult admission is £6.50 (children are free) and will help us raise money for Black Isle Bee Gardens, our own charitable society which creates gardens to benefit people and bees.  This includes admission to our market garden which we have been transforming over to a more sustainable and regenerative model by redesigning the main garden using agroecological design and growing principles.

Brewery Head Gardener Alex Davies writes about the market garden

We grow our organic vegetables and fruit using agroecological, no-dig and permaculture methods to increase biodiversity and support local flora and fauna.  A good example of this is how we use the spent grain from the brewery – as well as feeding it to our Hebridean sheep, we combine it with green waste from the garden and wood chippings from local tree surgeons to produce the compost in which we grow all our veg - this ‘closed loop’ system acts in a regenerative way, allowing us to give back more than we take from the land.
