Update: The Movable Bilberry Pad – First Modules Ready

The first modules of The Movable Bilberry Pad are now ready. The Siberian larch container modules were planted with wild bilberries, lingonberries, crowberries and some other forest floor plants such as mosses and calluna.

Thank you for our sponsors Messupuu and Piiraisen Viherpalvelu and the project supporters Kone Foundation and the Finnish Cultural Foundation!

The Movable Bilberry Pad – Update

The Movable Bilberry Pad gets an updated, hexagonal shape. The planting containers are made of siberian larch that has naturally excellent resistance to rot. The wood for the Pad is generously provided by Messupuu. The plant containers and the leg modules are designed as relatively small, independent units to maximise portability. The containers also vary in size so that we can get data of how much soil is optimal for the bilberries to grow.
