'Scotland's Gardens Scheme' gardens on show near Lanark
The beautiful gardes of Dippoolbank Cottage in Carnwath will be opened on Sunday 16th June as part of Scotland's Gardens Scheme
'Scotland's Gardens Scheme's purpose and vision is to raise money for charity through encouraging, promoting and supporting garden openings, whilst making the whole experience inspiring, rewarding and enjoyable for all involved.
Through garden openings, Scotland’s Gardens Scheme supports over 250 different charities each year. Beginning in 2018, Garden Openers may choose a charity(s) to receive up to 60% of their open day takings. Many of these charities are small and local. This percentage has increased from 40% in previous years to have a more positive impact on local communities and the charities close to Garden Owners’ hearts. The net remaining 40% of funds raised at openings is distributed to Scotland's Gardens Scheme beneficiaries who also provide tremendous help to local communities: The Queen's Nursing Institute in Scotland, Maggie's and Perennial.
