Vetiver Plants to Stop Erosion

Gives 10 vetiver plants
Gift Description:
$1 provides 10 vetiver plants to help Haitian farmers stop soil erosion problems caused by decades of deforestation. This perennial grass can grow up to five feet high, with roots that grow six to thirteen feet below the surface. Vetiver grass helps stabilize fragile soils and conserve moisture and nutrients that farmers have struggled to retain. The grass improves soil quality while keeping pests and invasive plants out of farms so Haitian farmers can better produce crops to eat and sell.
