Charity Garden Opening - Shepherd House

10 - 23 August, 2022
A constantly evolving artist’s garden that never stands still, with lots of surprises including a shell house built in 2014, lavender parterres, a rill and fountains. At its heart are the plants filling every border, spilling over arches and lining paths, which are the inspiration for Ann’s paintings. The season starts with the snowdrop collection of over 70 cultivars, moves on through hellebores, tulips, irises and roses. One of the garden's features is a mirror steel diamond sculpture to commemorate the Frasers' diamond wedding anniversary and 60 years in this garden.  This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.

Charity Garden Opening - Hunter's Tryst

10 - 23 August, 2022
Well-stocked and beautifully designed, mature, medium-sized town garden comprising herbaceous and shrub beds, lawn, fruit and some vegetables, water features, seating areas, trees and an example of cloud pruning. This is a wildlife-friendly garden that has been transformed from a wilderness 38 years ago and continues to evolve. In 2017 two raised beds were added to the front garden. This hidden treasure of a garden was featured on The Beechgrove Garden in June 2015 and on The Instant Gardener in June 2016. As we were unable to open in 2021 due to serious house damage, it is particularly exciting to be able to welcome everybody back in 2022. This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.

Psycho Capital: Calum Craik

10 - 23 August, 2022
Calum Craik’s new installation for Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop's street front gallery, examines the current neoliberal capitalist landscape through the lens of the objects and imagery it produces. The viewer is invited to navigate through a stage set of construction debris, precarious worker uniforms, defensive architecture and AirBnB rentals to arrive at a psychological space as much as a physical one. His sculptural vocabulary uses discarded materials and everyday items to examine labour, class, changing economies and complicity.
