This exhibition of work is part of the Kindling Trust’s wider Forgotten Fields project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, to explore the production, cultivation and availability, of locally produced food in Greater Manchester from 1750 to the present day.
Staff and pupils of Cheetham Community Primary School, and local residents will explore the heritage of food production, cultivation and the selling of produce in Cheetham.
Topics to be explored are linked to healthy living and sustainable choices today and include: indigenous wildlife and soil conditions for growing, tithe maps census details from 1841 and old farming families, the influence of transport on food availability in the area, the influence of migration and cultural issues, memories of wartime growing, links to allotments and ‘growing your own’ today.
