Mendip Studio School and the Northumberland Green Winged Orchid Conservation Project

We are delighted to be taking part in a conservation initiative lead by Northumberland Wildlife Trust, and co-ordinated by the Hardy Orchid Society, to raise about Green winged orchids from seed to be re-introduced into former sites in the county.

We have been sent seed and fresh mycorrhizal fungus for raising plants in the Mendip Propagation laboratory and will keep you posted on progress. The seed looks great and we are optimistic of raising a large number of plants for the project. A number of people will be raising seedlings to spread the risk. The project will also form part of the project work for year 13 Applied Science A level students from September.
