This was seriously good! Great roll-up too. The two speakers are Permie-certificated and teach at Northey Street.

Looking forward to this one :-) I've never really got a handle on Permaculture especially for growing annuals, it seems to be the opposite. I'm expecting to be much enlightened after the talk ;-)

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.
