Wild Sown Understorey is a ‘seeding action’ conceived by Lisa Kelly specifically for the front yard of 135 Union Street. In February green manure crop-seeds were cast, and the grass left to grow until the close of the wBST. The potential for a shaggy transformation of suburban ground will lay dormant or flourish according to rainfall, becoming a simultaneous ten-week weather index. Using the methods of natural farmer Masanobu Fukuoka, the project plays out in the space between a disturbance to a lawn-scape, land remediation and productivity, the absence of wildness, probable failure and climate change.
