Vetiver Grass Extension – Planting Out
With the ever-increasing usage of Watts Bridge, the time has come to extend the area of vetiver grass in the airfield’s sewerage treatment area. Approximately 3,400 vetiver plants were prepared during August and placed in containers with their bases submerged in water so they could establish roots.
The volunteer lead plant out took place in late September 2023. Planting of the second bed is scheduled for late October or early November.
