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!
