I am hoping that making fermented foods will mean I dont have to buy fermented supergreens any longer.

Welcome Roslyn :)

Make yourself at home and join the conversations.

When you have some workshops up and running feel free to list them in our Events section, I'm sure they'd be a hit.

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.
