The Peoples Landscape: Podcast
Shaun C. Badham with Fay Armstrong, Ron Bates, Pauline Beckwith, Tilly Hogrebe, Ray How, Kamil Pachalko and Philippa Stewart.
17 November 2021 to 16 January 2022
The People’s Landscape podcast aims to look at how the ownership of local land in South Essex has changed over the years from farmers, land speculators, plotlanders to current day. We hope to better understand the synergy between both these past communities and today’s local allotment societies and community growing projects. By tracing the demise of the plotlanders from compulsive purchasing schemes to slower encroaching commercial developments, what can this history tells us about today’s precarity around community land ownership and what the future holds for these groups who care and work the local land today. The podcast brings together current day conversations and historical accounts.
