BeetBox is a twice-weekly veg box scheme run by students at the University of Kent. BeetBox supply vegetables, salads, herbs and fruit from nearby Ripple Farm Organics, and have organised a series of popular events on campus, including film screenings, lectures and potluck socials.
BeetBox’s project coordinator was a runner-up for the university’s 2018 award for Outstanding Contribution to the Environment, and is nominated again in 2019. While BeetBox have had to deal with both a stolen table and broken marquee, the students involved report a stronger sense of community and increased confidence, patience and perseverance as a result of their work together.
