This episode is a chat with Babs Nicgriogair.  Originally from Stornoway, Babs has lived in Glasgow since the mid 80’s. 

Babs has worked at Green City in East End since the Millennium. Green City is a Wholesaler of ethically sourced food and drink based in the East End and is also a worker’s coop.       
We talk about Babs’ younger years in Stornoway, leaving Lewis to study in Glasgow, her time in Canada, her love of language and theatre, how she’s seen the East End change over the last 20 years and we go into the nature of Green City’s working practices and much more!

We have a Tales Fae the East Exhibition opening up at Dennistoun Library on Saturday the 2nd of April, where you will be able to see the portraits of the participants that Tim Morozzo has taken throughout the project.
Do drop in for a look around if you’re about.

Thank you for listening!
