Dungeness under threat

Europe’s largest expanse of shingle beach and one of the most beautiful seascapes at Dungeness  is in danger of being destroyed by a botched attempt to shore up its beach defences, say local residents

An application has been submitted to Kent County Council seeking consent to excavate shingle from this precious corner of the coast for use in flood defenses in neighbouring counties


LATEST: Kenty County Council is holding a public meeting on Tuesday, 17 January 2012 at 6.30 pm at the Lydd Community Hall (Manor Road, Lydd, TN29 9HU). http://www.lovedungeness.org/

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
