Newington will honour its fallen heroes at a ceremony on Thursday.
To commemorate the First World War centenary, poppy seeds will be sown on the green alongside the A2.
When the flowers bloom it will serve as a reminder to soldiers in the village who gave their lives in the conflict.
Seeds of Remembrance is a Newington History Group project supported by the village allotment association and Dobbies Garden Centre, Gillingham.
A representative from Sittingbourne and Milton District Royal British Legion will attend the sowing ceremony at 10.30am.
The commemoration will also include the reading of a poem written by village historian, Thelma Dudley.
She said: “We want villagers and people who travel on the A2 through Newington to see the bright red poppies growing and have a daily reminder of the sacrifice made by 31 brave men from this small community.”
Newington will hold a weekend of commemoration on September 6 and 7 with art, music, poetry and floral tributes.
On the Sunday, there will be a dedication of the village war memorial by the Bishop of Dover.
