The Gleaning Network – advert for an event

Mar 13, 2013

March 23rd Norfolk Gleaning Day:
On 23rd March, the Gleaning Network will be heading down to a farm in Norfolk to save tonnes of parsnips from going to waste. Do you live in Cambridge, Peterborough or Norfolk? We need volunteers to help harvest the tasty produce! We’re also looking for a driver with a driving license category C1 or above. Join the Arable Spring!

Contact martin@feeding5k.org to find out more, and sign up to volunteer. In your message, please let us know which area you are based in so we can match you up with nearby farms, and let us know if you can drive, or are interested coordinating gleaning days in the future.

Please look here for more information – http://www.feeding5k.org/gleaning.php
