    ALHFAM Historic Farming is proud to support “A Year on the Field” project as a partner with farmers across the globe to study wheat this growing season.

     

     

    Join us for our "A Year On The Field" project and become part of a unique, global study with friends and colleagues from many areas of interest!

     

    Our main questions for the project:

    1) How is wheat grown in different regions of the world and how have the cultivation methods changed over the centuries?

    2) What varieties were (and are) cultivated, and what wheat products do we know of?

     

    We are looking for:

    - farmers

    - museums

    - living history farms

    - archaeological open-air museums

    who document all steps of wheat cultivation and processing with us for a year on site

     

    We are also looking for:

    - Scientists

    - Collection staff

    - Bakers

    who want to provide us with insights into individual aspects of wheat cultivation, varieties and final wheat products through the centuries

     

    Our goals (and passion):

    - to enable a global exchange on the historical methods of cultivation and harvest, regional and era differences, of wheat

    - current importance of wheat in current culture or historical recipes

    - to promote regional, national, and international networking of museums, research and producers

    - to create an increased public attention for sustainable cultivation methods through intensive reporting in word, image and film

    - to strengthen the importance of museums in public discourse and agriculture

     

    Incorporate this project in your daily routines, include school projects, students and volunteers to split the work load and to intensify public engagement.

     

    For your information:

    How much time does the project take?

    The pilot phase will initially run for a year, to begin in autumn 2021. You will plant and cultivate as normal. You need only create regular documentation, which will take less than an hour per week, and submit to the project.

     

    Would you like to participate?

    Then get in touch as soon as possible at:  Claus Kropp

    You are invited to share your experiences creating inclusive interpretation, programs, and spaces at your museums and living history sites. What does inclusion look like at your site? What are you striving for in the future? How are you addressing and embracing the stories and storytellers who have historically been overlooked in your organization's interpretation? We want to hear how you are engaging and reflecting diverse audiences in staffing, governance, research, programming, collecting, education, and interpretation. Case studies, research, reviews, and opinion articles are welcome.

    Submissions are due by May 14, 2021. General submission guidelines can be found here.
