- After a long illness, our friend Georg Müller has died. We will never forget his friendlyness and affection when he participated at our working meeting 2014 in Prague. Georg's life's work was the collection, description and awareness raising on Europe's enclosed fields. Technics, material, distribution to name only a few. More than 30 years fieldwork and a wonderful book. Georg received several awards, among others by Prince Charles and the Dutch Awarded the Golden medlar (Gouden Mispel) 2014 by the Verenigung Nederlands Culturlandschap for an extremely detailed account of the cultural asset of field boundaries across Europe. His project and purpose in life will be continued in Ganderkesee, where an open air museum on hedges will be created. For more information about Georg and his work, please visit wallhecken or watch the film.
