“Trukken’ in the Lowcountry: A look at farming history”
Let’s get to the root of the Lowcountry’s agricultural history! From 1908-1945, truck (vegetable) farming was the primary industry on Daniel Island and the source of jobs for many of those living in the area. The word “truck” comes from the English word “trukken” which means to barter or trade without cash. Even though this business has disappeared from Daniel Island, this industry still thrives here in Charleston at Limehouse Produce. Join the Daniel Island Historical Society on September 15th at 7 pm at the Holy Cross Church as Andrea Limehouse, Vice President of Limehouse Produce, discusses the history of the company, its ties to the farmers on John’s Island and the surrounding areas, and the integral role Limehouse Produce is playing in the culinary explosion happening here in Charleston. Also joining us for this special program will be local chef and Daniel Island resident Jacqueline Gowe, owner and director of “Italian in the Kitchen.” Ms. Gowe, who is also the coordinator of the new Daniel Island Community Garden, will serve up some homegrown bounty for all to enjoy!
