Vetiver Technology Equips Farmers in North Leeward to Fight Erosion

Hand2Earth recently conducted its 4th workshop for farmers in North Leeward. The workshop, held in Rose Bank from 18th to 22nd March, focused on Vetiver Systems Technology. A total of 21 farmers received instruction on the theory, science, and practical applications of Vetiver Systems Technology.

Farmers from Petite Bordel, Rose Bank, Troumaca, Rose Hall, and Spring Village participated in the training sponsored by the GEF Small Grants Programme. During the workshop, farmers gained practical experience in various aspects, including land contouring, plant preparation, planting, and soil microbiology. Soil samples from their farms were also tested to determine pH levels and soil composition.

The GEF Small Grants Programme also provided funding for Hand2Earth to establish four vetiver nurseries in Belmont, Troumaca Bottom, and Bottom Village. Since Hand2Earth’s Farmland Restoration initiative began in 2022, a total of 55 farmers in the North Leeward area have received training in Vetiver Systems Technology. This technology is highly effective for erosion control
