Resources

Community Apothecary

A vision of a community herbal healthcare hub formed around medicine gardens, with a circular, mutually-supported flow of resources that are responsive to the diversity of the community and its healthcare needs. Plants grown, foraged, harvested collectively and made into medicine communally with skill-sharing and knowledge-building through practical learning at the heart of the process.

Grass Roots Remedies co-op

Grass Roots Remedies co-op works in areas of multiple deprivation in Edinburgh, some of the communities being hardest hit by covid-19. With our community herbal clinic now offering digital consultations only and all free community workshops cancelled during this time we are offering free herbal remedies, distributed alongside free food provision services.

Sewing Café Lancaster

Run by Victoria Frausin, Sewing Café Lancaster is a grassroots project that advocates for an ethical textile industry and sustainable textile practices. We draw on ideas of conviviality in actualizing “the eight ‘Rs’” – revalue, reconceptualize, restructure, relocate, redistribute, reduce, reuse and recycle in relation to clothes and textile production and consumption.

Social Farms & Gardens in NI

Since March Social Farms & Gardens in NI (funded by the People and Communities programme of the National Lottery Community Fund) has worked to enable the growing groups in NI to safely encourage ‘growing in their communities’ as an alternative to ‘community growing’.

The Shieling Project

The Shieling Project is a social enterprise and community-based off-grid education centre in Glenstrathfarrar, near Beauly in the Scottish Highlands. We use the story of the ‘shieling’ (àirigh in Scottish Gaelic) as a route into place-based learning about crofting, horticulture, green building, food growing and cooking, renewable technologies, traditional skills, crafts and culture. The idea is simple: to explore the landscape’s past to help build a more sustainable, resilient future.
