50 Farmers’ Tales
An exhibition at Urban Room Folkestone by the University of Kent Ethnobotany department
50 years, 50 stories: The dynamics of farms and farming in UKC’s backyard, 1965-2015
This exhibition created by the University of Kent staff and students depicts the dynamics of farms and farming in the University’s backyard, from 1965-2015. The main aim was to better understand social and ecological changes in the Kent landscape over the last 50 years, through an analysis of remote images (aerial photos, maps and satellite images) as well as 50 interviews with farmers on how their farms have changed during this period. We will show maps and the final film of the project.
The archive of the project is online at www.kent.ac.uk/sac/50farmers.
