Our work Jam Yesterday Jam Tomorrow - Heritage Conservation Jam Yesterday Jam Tomorrow was an Environment Trust heritage local project that enabled local people to explore the rich history of market gardening in South West Middlesex in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The Heritage Lottery Fund resourced the project which ran from 2012 to 2016 and included an exhibition, factsheets, oral histories, education sessions, drama and heritage walks - read more. It also established a Kitchen Garden in Marble Hill Park that where we continue to work with local volunteers to grow produce and run community and educational events in heritage conservation. The project engaged 240 volunteers in varied roles from research and recording oral histories to gardening and designing the exhibition. More than eleven thousand people participated in the project over four years, including exhibition visitors, drama audiences and more than a thousand school children. “Excellent example of use of oral history within museum environment. An abundance ofinformation wonderfully presented.” Exhibition visitor. “It was the first time I was interviewed about my family’s history of market gardening. It wasall very flattering in a way. I learnt some things I didn’t know as well. Things that go on andthey just get left in families and by the time you find out people have died and it’s all gone.”Oral History Interviewee. Quotes are in the evaluation report. Photo © David John Thompson SCROLL DOWN TO DOWNLOAD RESOURCES: 1. FEEDING LONDON EXHIBITION PANELS (9 panels) 2. FEEDING LONDON EXHIBITION BOOKLET (5 sections) 3.
