I have a small piece of land in a part of Mexico where the climate is tropical/humid. We receive about 1.5 metres of rain a year, usually squeezed into the months of June, July and August. We live in a basin-shaped hollow surrounded by steep slopes, and the soil is mostly clay. We have planted our own plot with vetiver very successfully from techniques learned via TVNI, and we now have some horizontal terraces rather than slopes. However to be really successful we would need to start higher up and as we don't own that land we can not do so. What we can do is spread the word and give vetiver to interested parties. The next challenge will be to plant enough little plantlets to make a nursery for future projects.
