The farming project began at this locality in 1997, was expanded there, and started at other localities as more equipment was built (Monastery area 1998, Jokers 2001).  The locality 'information' workbook shows that a wide variety of stand and block configurations were tried initially, e.g., in 2000 each box was seeded with generation 1999 stock of only 1 or 2 species. Part of the necessary rearrangements for 2000 included a massive Potter harvest in October 1999 that failed to reduce their numbers in the long run. Overwintering species totals for 1997-2000 are given in the 'information' workbook, so questions using such data can potentially be addressed by complete censuses for 11 generations (1997-2007). Also included in the workbook are data on Symmorphus Potter wasp prepupal colours for generations 2004-6.

During 2001-2007 the names of the two duplicate equipment stands were 'MID' and 'WES'. Cavities soon became crowded again with the small Potter Wasps Symmorphus canadensis and S.cristatus. The 'information' workbook, page 'overview', gives diagrams of selective harvesting aimed at restoring biodiversity. Similar management information is given for each stack of nest blocks in the SOURCE sheets.
