NATURAL AREAS AND THE VEGETATION
The Vendom project respect the local environment.
The coast, being comprised mostly of sand, supports little vegetation.
It will therefore not be possible to plant such big area of grass since it’s water requirements are too demanding. So we have planted a little area of grass but with a special filtration for water.
As a result indigenous plants such as palms, cactus, cashew, eucalyptus, mango and other fruit trees will be given priority. Other species capable of surviving the semi-arid climate has been also introduced, as well as those capable of filtering grey water.
In order to collect water and allow other plants to flourish, we have developed a compost in layers through recycling of organic waste.
Vegetation produces organic waste: leaves, wood, bark ...
Supply also: peelings, tea, coffee, eggshells, leftover vegetables, fruits ...
Small stationery: paper, card, cardboard ...
All these are passed to waste compost or clutch to create own soil to nurture new arable land and nourish the organic farm.
Natural ventilation is preferred to air conditioning which required to be repaired very often and which is greedy in energy.
