Feeding the Nation Project - Final Online Exhibition


The third and final exhibition of the ESRC-funded project Feeding the Nation (Dr Roxana Barbulescu PI) with the Museum of English Rural Life has been launched.

The exhibition is entitled Migrant workers: hidden rural mobilities.

'Horticultural work is seasonal, but it is not temporary. Many migrant workers will return home for 6 months and then return to the UK annually. They do not know if they will be placed on the same farm, but what is clear is that the UK food system is reliant on them to pick, pack, and process food.'
