Apple Gleaning starts in October

Great Gleaners of Kent,

Orchard season is upon us and we're preparing for another busy season gleaning wonderful fruits (and some fabulous veg too) across Kent, and we need your help to glean it all for charity!

Kent Gleaning Network is currently coordinating the following gleaning days. We warmly invite you to sign up for these events in advance and will send out further details in the week running up to each event.

Additional gleaning days will be added as we learn of more crops across the county in need of rescue. We aim to give 1-2 weeks notice of gleaning events but this is not always possible.

Monday 7th October: 3pm -5pm (exact times to be confirmed): We'll be gleaning potatoes from a farm near Wingham.

Due to the short notice of this glean please contact us directly at to join in. Minibus lifts will be available from Folkestone.

Thursday 9th October: 3pm-6pm (times to be confirmed): We'll be gleaning apples and/or pears from a farm near Sandwich.

Monday 14th October: 11am-4pm (times to be confirmed): Gleaning apples and/or pears from a farm near Sandwich

The rescued fruit & veg will be donated to local charities and other organisations that feed people across the region, which means that the healthy fruit will avoid waste and instead enter a supply chain supporting people in food poverty.

Ready to get gleaning? Fantastic! **Sign up here** to provide us with a few basic details. It’s really helpful if you can sign-up ASAP, as this gives us an idea of numbers and drivers. You'll be sent info in advance of the gleaning day including travel information. We will try to organise lift shares or collection from nearby train stations for as many people as possible if you sign up in good time.

If you do sign-up and later realise you can’t make it, then that's not a problem, just please email me to cancel at so we can plan accordingly. Last-minute drop-outs can sometimes have knock-on effects, so please just say if your attendance is in doubt. 

Expenses: Travel expenses for fuel or public transport can be covered for those travelling from nearby – just check with us first (we cover up to £12 per gleaner per day or £6 for half day gleans).

Do get in touch by email if you have any questions and I hope to see you out in the orchards over the next few weeks!

Best & beetroot,


Kent Gleaning Network Coordinator (07920404546)

Walmer Beach Clean with Wayne+Koda

Thank you everyone who came on today's Community Beach Clean on Walmer Beach - it was a hot one!

We had over 60 volunteers who collected nearly 32kilos of litter including some 7 kilos which we could recycle.

It was great to see colleagues from Litter Picking Watch Romney Marsh joining us as well Wayne Dixon and Koda who are walking the full UK Coastline litter picking as they go! They will be in the town for the next couple of days so say hello to them

Big thanks to Nigel and the O'Brian family for helping to organise and Pete and the Sea Café for hosting us.

Our next clean is part of the MCS 'Great British Beach Clean' on Sunday 22nd September Deal Pier 9:30am. All Welcome

#KentGleaning - 1.5 tons of Cherries in July/August

We have spectacularly gleaned right to the very end of the cherry season. 
This week's gleans saw us rescue 187kg on Monday at Selson farm and another 155kg at Newmafruit on Wednesday. I know I've said this before, but this really does mark the end of cherry season- the farms have removed their nets and the rain expected tonight will spoil any final remaining fruits (although I suspect the wasps will have got in their first anyway). I want to thank you all for your spectacular efforts to rescue as many cherries as possible.

I thought you'd like to know that in total this year we have gleaned 1541kg cherries in Kent. That is a serious amount of fruit which has now been devoured by some of our regions most vulnerable people. A 'portion of fruit (according to the "eat 5 a day" campaign) is 80g for an adult, so we have gleaned sufficient cherries this year to feed 19,262 people a portion of the finest Kentish cherries! And if that doesn't sound impressive enough- Newmafruit (one of Kent's largest growers and importers of fruit) harvested 50 tonnes of cherries from their orchards this year and they considered 2019 to be a very good year, so the fact that a group of considerably less experienced pickers managed to glean over 1.5 tonnes on only 8 partial days of picking (including some seriously hot days plus having to do a lot of quality control on some of the varieties) is amazing. Thank you all very, very much!

The next glean we have planned is on the 14th August starting at 3pm. This will probably be leafy veg and potatoes near Wingham but farms are now harvesting plums and Newmafruit has offered us there's when they're finished picking so keep an eye on your email inboxes, there may be some more dates added any day. It's also now early apple season, but I don't expect there to be a rush for these any time soon (I hope!). If you'd like to sign up for 14th you can do so here:

And if you're not already on the Gleaning Network mailing list and would like to receive emails when we have gleaning days scheduled you can do so here:

Finally, we were chatting about the British sugar industry on Wednesday's glean and I thought some of you might be interested in reading Feedback's exploration into the UK sugar industry and it's impact on our soils. It was truly a shock to most of us when it was shared amongst the team: there's plenty more campaigns, research and studies on different aspects of the food system on The Feedback Website, if you're passionate about sustainable foods I do suggest giving it a browse when you have the time.

Once again, thank you so much for joining us on the final week of cherry gleaning, it was a true pleasure to see you all out in the orchards and I look forward to seeing you again soon on one farm or another.

Best and beets,

Gleaning near Sandwich this week

📣 GLEANING CALL OUT! Please share far and wide! We’ve just discovered a huge crop of cherries going to waste on a farm near Sandwich in Kent. This fruit is perfectly delicious but the farm are unable to harvest all of the crop and those wonderful cherries are too good to waste. So we're setting out to save as many as possible – and we NEED YOUR HELP. The more volunteers we have, the more food we can save!

On Wednesday 17th July from 3pm and on Friday 19th July 11am-3pm, we'll be gleaning at a beautiful farm near Sandwich. The fruits will then be donated to charities and other orgs feeding vulnerable people throughout our region. We warmly invite you help us get Kent's finest cherries to those who need them most. We can cover some travel expenses from surrounding towns –just check with us first. To join us on the glean, sign up here: You will then be sent more info about the gleaning day including travel coordination. We are also keen to hear from community groups, churches and other orgs that may be interested in running gleans of their own, helping distribute produce in local communities or making use of gleaned produce within their existing activities. If you'd like to discuss any of these please join us on a glean or send an email to Hope to see you in the orchards soon!

Deal With It receives the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

Deal With iT – Transition Deal, Deal’s local green community group, has been honoured with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK.

Deal With It, which celebrated its 12th birthday earlier in the year organises the regular community beach cleans, supports the community gardens at Deal Railway Station, The Landmark Centre and Captain’s Garden at Deal Castle, Seed Swaps, green energy events, Bee festivals, tree planting, town litter picks, and has initiated a number of campaigns such as Plastic Free Deal and projects such as the Deal Hop Farm (a patchwork farm of 250 gardens & allotments in and around the town growing hops and producing beer with local brewers).

It is also the local partner for a number of national/regional charities such as Surfers Against Sewage, Marine Conservation Society, Kent Wildlife Trust’s Guardians of the Deep and English Heritage.

Deal With iT – Transition Deal is one of 281 charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups to receive the prestigious award this year, which is the equivalent to an MBE for a organisation.

The number of nominations and awards has increased year on year since the awards were introduced in 2002, showing that the voluntary sector is thriving and full of innovative ideas to make life better for those around them.

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service aims to recognise outstanding work by volunteer groups to benefit their local communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee. Winners are announced each year on 2nd June – the anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation.

Representatives of Deal With iT will receive the award from the Viscount De L'Isle, Lord Lieutenant of Kent later this summer.

Victoria Nicholls, Deal With iT’s Secretary and one of the founding members of the group said “We are very fortunate to live in a town which is fuelled by the energy, commitment and creativity of so many voluntary organisations and people who want to make a difference to our community.

We are delighted that our small contribution to local environment and community has been recognised by this award; we see it as a tribute to all those have played a role in our various projects, events and campaigns over the last twelve years and especially the hundreds of people who have volunteered their time on beach cleans, community gardens, green energy events, making the town plastic free, seed swaps and even growing beer in the town!

Last year our various projects and events produced some 5,368 volunteer hours with some 1,902 volunteers involved – its great to think that all those local people can lay claim to small part of a shared MBE.

We would like to thank Dover District Council for nominating us for the award and the great support from Linda Ford at Sandown Castle Community Garden & Mark Brent from English Heritage at Walmer Castle in supporting the nomination.

Given the linked challenges of the mounting climate crisis, the tide of plastic in our seas and endangerment of so much of our animal and plant life, it’s so important that we take urgent action at every level, especially here in our local community.”

The next Deal With It event is the community beach clean on Sunday 23rd June at 9.30am meeting at Deal Pier.

Goodwin Sands become next Marine Conservation Zone

After a long campaign by many environmental organisations including our local Goodwin Sands SOS and the Kent Wildlife Trust the government has announced today that the Sands will become the next Marine Conservation Zone .

This does not immediately stop the dredging of the sands by the Dover Harbour Board and Goodwin Sands SOS have a judicial review of the decision to allow dredging under way. They need more funds for the case, please see their most email below:

Dear Goodwin Sands SOS supporter,

We appreciate that we have only just written to you but we thought you would like to know that the Goodwin Sands have been included in the third and final tranche of Marine Conservation Zones, announced today by DEFRA.

This is excellent news for the Sands in general and a very positive step forward for the campaign, coming as it does just days before the Judicial Review on 5th June. However, unfortunately it does not mean that we have won our case to prevent Dover Harbour Board from dredging.

What it should mean is that the Judge will review all evidence with extra care and attention before arriving at a decision about quashing the licence. This is now a national test case about the robustness of the Blue Belt initiative and its effectiveness in face of the Government’s economic Blue Growth agenda.

Our fund raising appeal stands at just over £2,000 short of our £20,000 target. Please give generously; we need to ensure the Marine Conservation Zone programme is worth the paper it is written on! Donations can be made easily at or if you would like us to claim Gift Aid on your donation please email us directly at Please note we cannot claim Gift Aid on CrowdJustice donations.

Many thanks for your continued support.

The community volunteers bringing back the Captain’s Garden at Deal Castle into use have an Open Day on Easter Monday, 22nd April from 10:30am to 2pm.

Deal #BigSpringBeachClean Sunday 14th April 2019

Massive thank you to our 103+ volunteers on today's Deal Beach Clean at Sandown. 
A fantastic turnout despite that cold wind from the east! 

This was part of the national #BigSpringBeachClean happening at over 300+ beaches around the UK this weekend - organised nationally by Surfers Against Sewage environmental charity 

We collected 118kilos of rubbish, only 4kilos which we can recycle but lots and lots of smaller pieces of plastic.  

We also found lot of random stuff - Golf balls, ghost fishing tackle, one slipper, discarded angling line and a small plastic mouse, 

Thanks as always to the organising team today; Vicky, Colin, Tony, Rose, Wendy, Nick, Paul and Graham. 

Next Clean is at Walmer Castle on 27/5
