Not much actually which is sad. We were in LETS together, you knew me by my maiden name - Kate Pattingale

Yep! I left in 2001 and moved to DBay in 2002. The new owners gutted the house, raised it up and I don't know what if anything, they did with the garden.

Sounds wonderful. I used to live in Fairfield so we could have almost been neighbours ... would love to have come but it's a trial for me now to travel from Deception Bay into town.

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.
