What is your wish for this project?

The project will focus on the planting of vetivre grass along the only road that leads into the villages set deep with the mountains. Vetivre grass grows very quickly and its roots form a basket underneath the soil. It is great for erosion control. Heavy rains create soil erosion and washes out the road because there is very little vegetation to control the situation. Once the vetivre grows it can be thinned out and more

How are you going to do it?

The project would take place in March, April, and May 2017 when Haiti Plunge high school youth teams will be on-site in Haiti to work on the project with their Haitian peers.
