Seeds jam at WSL
Seeds are coming from all over Europe (and beyond) and filling in our cold room. So far we have provenances from Italy, Croatia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Poland, Germany, France and more will come!
In the picture the boxes containing our precious seeds stored in the cold room of WSL.
The seeds are starting to germinate in the micro-gardens of our participants

Ready to send!
The tool kits to set up the trials are ready to be dispatched to our very first participants in 5 countries: Italy, Scotland, France, Bulgaria and Hungary!
Start of the project
We are designing and testing the first version of the protocol that will be used to set up the micro-gardens. To do so, we have established 4 gardens in the forest next to our institute and tested the effects of rodent exclusion cages (in the picture) and weed competition.
