The Hope Sakuma team continue their rainy season project to extend the cassava farm right up to the rice paddies providing plenty of space to interplant with cashew and fruit saplings the team have been growing. Clearing the scrub the guys then dig high heaps ready for planting. The Ladies select prime cassava sticks from the main cassava farm expertly cutting them to propagating size before Miss Ballou leads the Ladies planting the freshly cut sticks in the newly dug heaps. And this nutritious drought-resistant crop is helping rural communities in Karene adapt to the dangers of droughts, climate change harbingers. With more than a ton of highly nutritious gari processed from our harvest earlier this year the team are looking forward to a bumper harvest next cropping season!
