Of Pigeons and Peas will explore the histories and futures of the Manor Allotments. This storytelling project seeks to uncover and celebrate the working-class histories of allotments as sites of community-building, wellbeing, connection with nature and animals, and growing.

 

Between May 2024 and October 2024, the Bare Project in collaboration with The Manor and Castle Development Trust and community participants, will curate a series of workshops for local people to uncover local history and stories about the Manor Allotments on Manor Fields Park. We will think about the future of these sites in response to both environmental change and the increasing food poverty within East Sheffield.

 

The project will culminate in a community celebration which is likely to include an outdoor feast and sharing of the historical and anecdotal stories that they have unearthed.
