Ubuntu Wellness Universe

where we bring people together for Unity in Diversity

In the three years that we have had the Ubuntu Wellness Center here at the St. Rosaweg, especially tourists have been amazed to see the amount of edible material we managed to grow around the house. Although the greenhouse stood central delivering celery, tomatoes and cucumbers, but definitely the prize for loyal all year round delivery of edible roots would have to go to all the Cassava bushes.

More than 100 kilo’s of this potato like delicacy was harvested over the years and turned into soups, stews, sweet bakes, and even drinks. We sold the cassava and also gave some away.

And here's ...the Cassava

And here’s …the Cassava

Montgomery George Maynard, our multi talented gardener knows the Cassava or Yucca plant very well from his days back in the fincas of Venezuela. Even with exact timing for when to harvest the yucca, rats will get to the plant roots first and eat their bellies full.

Beautiful fresh organic Yucca !

Anyway,  we did manage to get at least 25 kilo’s worth for our own bellies. After sharing some with friends and family, the rest will be processed into cassava pizzas, macaroons and of course the stellar Ubuntu Cassava Coconut Cake. This to celebrate the last use of our industrial oven, which produced time after time, nice dishes for our nourishment.
