YAHOO URAROO! Boy we were looking and looking for this ARROWROOT (URARO) and when we found it in Mt. Province, we went “Yahoo!” But then we were told to wait, a few months at least, because the roots are still very small. “Okay.” We said, “How many can we get?” We were told there are only a few plants in that so they said not a lot. You can imagine how that feels especially that hundreds of members were oohing and aahing over the pictures of the Arrowroot plants we posted. Obviously, we tapped a well of desire and we cannot deny it. So we kept looking. We asked our farmers in the Cordilleras and our farmers in Nueva Vizcaya, nothing there. As it turned out we were looking it the wrong place because we found what we were looking for in Tiaong, Quezon. Arrowroot grows in cool highland forests but grows better in humid rain forest conditions. So there.
We have Arrowroot for you but only in limited number. This is the first time we will work with these farmers who we are asking to become foragers for us but they will do it. They are sure that that they can get 50 kilos but if they are lucky, 100 kilos.
GROUP BUY: ARROWROOT. We are looking for a few Rural Rising members to support a trip to Tiaong, Quezon with P500. When we get back with the Uraro, your share shall be 3 kilos. FMs get 3.5 kilos.
