New Explore The Past podcast!
- 28th July 2021
Over the past couple of years we have interviewed 15 people as part of the Market Gardening Heritage project. As well as market gardeners themselves we had families of gardeners, as well as those involved in associated industries, selling produce and helping with the transportation.
We thought we would turn these into a podcast to make these stories and memories more accessible. We delve in to market gardening in the Vale of Evesham – the hidden hands, incredible feats and lasting legacy of an industry that fed the nation and shaped the local area for over 100 years. It was edited for us by Julia Letts.
Hear our favourite tales and go behind the scenes of the Market Gardening Heritage project, set up with National Lottery Heritage Fund support to record, share and celebrate the Vale’s national heritage before it’s too late.
