TVNI Mission
The Vetiver Network International (TVNI) promotes the worldwide use of the Vetiver System (VS) for a sustainable environment particularly in relation to land and water.

Please support TVNI operations with a donation (your tax deductible donation will generate an emailed receipt)


Network history, achievements and timeline presentation


For Vetiver users in Kenya: join the Platform for Land Use Sustainability (PLUS-Kenya). See details on VS applications,
and other innovations for sustainable Land and Water Resource Management.


For Californians who need to stabilize slopes, Go to this picture gallery link and a special California related flyer.


USA users - go to this Plant Guide about Vetiver (Sunshine cultivar), published by USDA/NRCS - and be assured of its approval.
