our grand sons have been planting seeds from fruit since they were in nappies.  we have some strange fruit trees growing in pots and hidden parts of the garden, but we also have two boys willing to try any grown food and if it tastes good wanting to try and grow it.  They both got very large (on their scale - 4yo and 5yo)  pots and potting mix and seeds as a christmas present (as well as all the electric must haves for kids that age)  and they joyously care for them every day.  even the sibling rivalry stops with the pots gardens hey have.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
