Earthmaster X Highfield Farm

Seed Trials

Naturalization Field Trial Plots for the benefit of native pollinator populations.

Seed trials have been set up to assess the viability and suitability of the plant species chosen by the City of Calgary for the Roadside Naturalization Pilot Project located along 16th ave NE. Earthmaster was awarded the contract to install the seed mixtures in the roadside corridor and to assess the growth and survival of the plants once germinated.

Each plot at the Highfield trial site represents a single species of flower or grass planted at the City site, with the exception of a couple which contain a mixture of native grass species. Each plot is being tested under a variety of conditions, such as minimal watering, or effectiveness of an additional liquid biological amendment such as worm castings.

Community Benefit

Our collaboration with Earthmaster goes beyond the land revitalization trials occurring on-site. They also support the project with soil sampling of the site.

Visiting Details

The seed trials site can be viewed during farm hours, but for further details or a more in depth tour of this space, please email info@highfieldfarm.ca.
