Empowering Farmers through Vetiver Systems Technology: Hand2Earth’s 4th Workshop in North Leeward

Hand2Earth recently conducted its 4th workshop for farmers in North Leeward, focused on Vetiver Systems Technology. The workshop, held in Rose Bank from 18th to 22nd March, saw the participation of farmers from Petite Bordel, Rose Bank, Troumaca, Rose Hall, and Spring Village. A total of 21 farmers received instruction on the theory, science, and practical applications of Vetiver Systems Technology.

During the workshop, farmers gained hands-on experience in various aspects of vetiver systems technology, including land contouring, plant preparation, planting, and soil microbiology. Soil samples from their farms were also tested to determine pH levels and soil composition. The GEF Small Grants Programme provided funding for Hand2Earth to establish four vetiver nurseries in Belmont, Troumaca Bottom
