Don’t dig up that way, you’ll spoil the harvest!
Cassava harvesting is a skill. Starting from how to identify if it has a ready tuber for harvesting to which direction it runs and finally remembering it’s part of a root system that intertwines – how do I dig it up without damaging the other growing roots!
At times the root you require is growing downwards or under roots not fully developed, how do you harvest this root without damaging the younger roots?

This month visit and learn this cassava skill passed down generations in a cultural experience
