Erosion control planting starts

We planted Vetiver grass around the sand dams for controlling erosion and silting.  See slide show "Vetiver planting..." in column to right.

  On right - Excavated Vetiver grass roots!! Vetiver produces no seed and does not spread.  Its roots are the strongest of any plant, and often penetrate 5 meters downward. See for more information on vetiver grass.
