Fletching: sun, sky, glass and veggies

Posted by carlotta on Tuesday June 25th, 2013 at 1:26pm

I have been trawling through more photographs since I sorted out the Glynde photos. Another large project I have worked on for the past couple of years is a documentary on local small-scale food producers. Although I am doing a monthly portrait for the Lewes Friday Market, many of these photos I have not revisited in well over a year. I thought people might enjoy a glimpse into the lives of the hard-working, slow food movement folk of rural Sussex. First up, Fletching Glasshouses, where four greenhouses, covering two acres of land, are used to grow organic vegetables. I need to head back to Fletching soon to get a portrait of owner Alan Rae for the September issue of the ‘The Market Year’. In the meantime, here are some shots of workers harvesting kale and other luscious vegetables inside the striking buildings.
