Growing local

I got a septic tank system at my home. Can I set up my vegetable garden on the drain field of the system? Is any hygiene issue? Thanks.

Hi Joe, I have just typed in growing plants on septic drain fields into the search engine and found there are a lot of sites that can answer your question. I am sorry but as I have no experience in that field, and can't help you with this one.

Thanks Dianne. I will have a search and look. Cheers, Joe

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.
