Surrounded by Water

Restoration at the Land – Water interface

With 5 distinct ecologies, the gardens surrounding the SEED Barn include rocky headlands, a small mudflat, wet meadow and open forests. Using Hugelkultur techniques, the gardens are a demonstration ground for folding invasives into the landscape to re-establish native plant communities. These gardens supply seeds to a network of garden stewards as we build a framework for living SEED libraries, providing an ongoing & open source for native plant seeds used in restoration practices.
