The Vetiver Conservation Initiative was initiated in partnership with the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University and Bountiful Grains.

The “Vetiver grass project” have been implemented for conservation practice and the building of “Stone Check Dams” for donga reclamation. This labour-intensive practice produces a significant benefit to communal lands through conservation of soil, water and nutrients.

Siyakholwa Business has a nursery of the order of 10,000 plants that are being sold for stocking new areas.
