The main species they plan to sow are:

Primula veris

Recognized for its golden yellow flowers. It is a species of flowering plant in the Primulaceae family, native to western and southern Europe, northwestern Africa, and parts of southwestern Asia.

Both its leaves and flowers are edible. It is the national flower in the Aland Islands.
