Project description

The project created a herb-rich meadow and arable plant margin adjacent to the Museum. This provides a seedbank for future projects, and interprets the historical and cultural importance of these declining and traditionally managed Suffolk habitats.
The seed was harvested from an ancient Suffolk hay meadow using a hand-built brush seed harvester. This was supplemented by green hay strewn from the same meadow, and the seeds of arable plants were hand collected from organic farms, set-aside land and land under environmental schemes.
