Kent Reliance has been supporting the people of Kent for over 150 years. We’re passionate about helping our local community and that’s why we’re proud to work on Project Kent again this year in partnership with kmfm.
Over the last few weeks we've been asking you to nominate local areas or spaces in Kent that are in desperate need of some love and attention.
After a huge number of entries from across the county, we’ve chosen a very special community project in Maidstone.
Our enthusiastic Project Kent team made up of Kent Reliance and kmfm volunteers will be heading to Shepway Chariots to transform areas of the garden and allotment, as well as redecorate their kitchen and classroom hut. They’ll be weeding,
planting, chopping, sowing seeds, building bug huts and beehives, fixing, cleaning, painting, creating a fairy corner and much more.
More about this year’s project
Shepway Chariots community garden and wildlife corner is run completely by volunteers. The half-acre of green space encourages local residents and families to learn how to grow, tend and harvest their own fresh fruit and vegetables. Also, the charity
works hard to spread awareness about the environment, biodiversity and wildlife as well as practice recycling and compositing on site. The small team at Shepway Chariots have regular visits from local primary schools, nurseries and families and hold
a free children's gardening club called Shepway Shallots!
