Gleaning Day Saturday 5th October in Essex http://www.feeding5k.org/gleaning.php
Join the gleaning network for an idyllic day on a farm helping to save literally tonnes of delicious fresh fruit and vegetables that would otherwise be wasted for charity. Travel expenses are covered for those travelling from London and nearby – just check with Martin first! firstname.lastname@example.org,
We’re also looking for a driver to transport the produce from the farms to FareShare in London – if you’d be interested in driving a van (normal driving license required) for the day, then please get in touch!

Here’s a new online course dedicated to growing food in containers.

If you’re not able to join his club you can still receive free newsletter each month with guidance of what you can be doing in the garden at the time http://www.verticalveg.org.uk
