FEEDING LONDON: The Forgotten Market Gardens of South West London 15 November

FEEDING LONDON: The Forgotten Market Gardens of South West London
7.30 pm – 9 pm, Thursday 15th November 2018
ETNA Centre, 13 Rosslyn Road, Twickenham, TW1 2AR
Discover the hidden history of market gardening in SW London at our fascinating talk by local historian and Environment Trust volunteer DAVID LAWRIE!
This talk will reveal the rapid and radical change of land use arising from London’s ever-growing population, from the desperate need to increase food production in the 1800s, to the demand for housing for the new ‘commuter classes’ in the 20th century. Through the stories of the great gardening dynasties of Middlesex and with sound recordings of living memories, we will trace the growth, peak and decline of the production of “Feltham Firsts”, “Hounslow Wonders” and “American Beauties”. All will be revealed!
