    Flat Pack Meals is a collaboration between Drumchapel L.I.F.E. and the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow. It began life as an artist-led project to create a women's co-operative in Drumchapel that would increase access to healthy affordable fresh produce. Following on from the work of Wochenklausur and Alex Wilde on the project, artist Clementine Sandison has spent the last year exploring people's relationship to food in Drumchapel. It all started with a story about potatoes, which used to grow all around the estate when it was first built. People's memories of "tottie rustling" from the fields as children helped to open up questions about how access to fresh locally grown food has changed over the years. With the support of a team of committed local volunteers and part-time Volunteer Co-oridnator Amber Cully, affordable meal bags, known as Flat Pack Meals, are now being sold on a weekly basis from different pick up points in Drumchapel. Clementine Sandison teamed up with digital artist Kim Beveridge to document the journey which led to the creation of Flat Pack Meals. They did this through audio and video interviews, stills photography, community meals and vox pop recordings alongside the mobile Tottie Trolley.

            The Global Roots Project is an oral history project created in collaboration with members of the Stop Community Food Center's Global Roots multicultural community garden. The short and personal stories are as diverse as the plants grown in the gardens and show the ways in which everyday experiences with food and a love for gardening and eating can bring people together.

                    What is the currency of community? And how is it used to achieve food justice? This is what we work to answer on a daily basis. At home&community, inc, we started the OriginalGreen project recognizing that our clients have always done some recycling and been eco-conscious – out of necessity. But more work was needed to institute the sustainable practice that would bring more long-term improvements to their health. We’ve found that sustainable practice is supported through community connections where neighbors can talk about ways to grow and share food, or introduce eco-friendly changes in their homes, or the practical ways they reduce household costs. We’re ready to work with residents at our urban farms. We believe we can increase the currency of community. We can increase meaningful participation in community improvement. We can provide low-income residents in South Los Angeles with resources and skills to improve their health and the health of their neighborhoods. When residents have ownership over feeding the community, promoting healthy lifestyle changes, and sharing and determining their own currency of community, the effort becomes self-sustaining. http://startsomegood.com/Venture/original_green_community_food_plan/Campaigns/Show/Making%20Our%20Beds
