Growing Culture; celebrating London's past and future food growing heritage

Growing Culture, is a new initiative from Capital Growth, focusing on London's food growing heritage and how this has contributed to the culture of families, communities and our city.
 
We'll want to share and celebrate London's growing heritage so would love to hear stories from your garden, volunteers and growers.

In particular, we are collecting, recording and publishing memories of food growing. This could be about the heritage of your site or hearing from growers with a story to tell. Please answer these questions to help us find out more about your garden and ways you might get involved.

The data will be used to help us make further contacts and collated to feedback to our funders.

Question Title

* 1. Please provide a few project details

Question Title

* 3. What sort of garden/project are you involved with?

Question Title

* 4. How long has your site been used as a food growing space?

Question Title

* 5. What is your site mainly used for? (You can choose more than one answer)

Question Title

* 6. We are interested in the role of food growing and in shaping our city's heritage and culture.  Is there an interesting history to your site or your neighbourhood?  Has the land been used to grow food in the past?  Please give a short overview of anything relevant about your site/group so we can follow up.

Question Title

* 7. Do you grow any heritage or heirloom crops on site or use traditional techniques?  Please provide details. (note: Heirloom vegetables are defined as old-time varieties, open-pollinated instead of hybrid, and saved over generations and handed down)

Question Title

We are looking for people with a personal connection with food growing.  This could be someone who has been food growing for a long time, has information on food production in their local area (e.g.market gardens,) or those with overseas heritage, who grow exotic fruit or veg or unusual herbs and spices.

Please give a brief outline of anyone you think it would be good to interview for an oral history case study and we will follow up with you to find out more

Question Title

* 9. Do you have any further comments or ideas to help to capture the heritage of food growing in London, or at your site?

Question Title

* 10. Tell us a bit about yourself (We will only use this information to contact you about oral history interviews or for more information about your site)
