|Jam Yesterday Jam Tomorrow|
Jam Yesterday Jam Tomorrow is a 3-year Heritage Lottery Funded community project run by the Environment Trust for Richmond upon Thames. The project aims to uncover the important but forgotten heritage of the Twickenham, Hampton, Hounslow and Hanworth’s market Garden industry. Through oral histories, archive research and hands-on activities, people of all ages will be able to learn about and decide on ways to restore the lost plant heritage to sites throughout the area.
The hidden histories of market gardens will be restored through the creation of a model market garden in Marble Hill Park that will showcase lost varieties and traditional methods of growing.
The participation of volunteers will help to preserve the history and spread knowledge about market gardens so that the ingenious and hard-working growers are remembered, and our traditional fruits and vegetables are once again enjoyed. Volunteers will also help maintain the model market garden and act as a point of contact with the public during our busy programme of events from spring 2014 onwards.
