Vetiver grass arrives at the tiny farm

Andrew Cumberland who anchors Brisbane Local Food's  online existence has planted of our Vetiver in his tiny suburban farm.
This is a great example  of the plant's utility even in built up surburbia.

For what he wants to engineer, the distance between slips seems about right.

This time of year V is a slow grower. Just keep the water up for the first few weeks.

I think Andrew's topography is reflective of a lot of Brisbane suburban blocks which can be impacted by flash floods and heavy downfalls, especially when sub divisions employ terracing. Even a few Vetiver plants make for an ideal solution to erosion and drainage problems
