True Harvest Seeds

Grant awarded - £600

True Harvest Seeds will collect local seed of lyme grass, marram grass, sand couch grass, sand sedge, sea kale and oyster plant under licence, with land owners' permission and provide training in this for their volunteers from local conservation action groups.

The seeds will be sown at True Harvest Seed's seed centre in Kilclief, Downpatrick in County Down.  The plants will grow and ultimately set seed which can then be harvested for many years, making native seed available for further local restoration work without collecting excessively from the wild.

200 plants of each species will be planted so as to ensure genetic diversity.
