Naturewalk, Costa Rica continues sustainable development with harvest of tiquisque
Naturewalk farming company begins to harvest the tiqusque planted in Permalife Farms, Naturewalk, Costa Rica.
Individual lot owners can have their dream home on their own lot but in addition the lots are planted with a range of high value agricultural crops.
One of the crops is tiquisque. Tiquisque is a form of Taro and the root is a popular food not only in Costa Rica but in many other countries around the world.
The tiquisque has a 7 month planting to harvest growth cycle.
A number of lot owners in the Permalife farm area of Naturewalk 3 have tiquisque growing on their lots. The Naturewalk Farming Company, which plants, manages and harvests the crops throughout Naturewalk, will commence harvesting on Monday the 19th of November 2013.
The harvest is expected to take 3 to 4 weeks in total and the lots will be replanted with tiquisque with the replanting team working behind the harvesting team.
The tiquisque has thrived and is in excellent condition and the Naturewalk Farming Team and Farm Management anticipate an excellent harvest.
Tim Alexander, President of Naturewalk Brands, commented “we are delighted with the condition of the tiquisque on permalife farms and the excellent job our farming team have done. We are looking forward to an excellent return for our lot owners”.
Naturewalk is a fully master planned community of 1200 acres in Turrubares Costa Rica. Owners in Naturewalk own fully serviced lots on which they can have their dream home. Owners further benefit from fully managed crops growing on their land, giving them an income. The masterplan for Naturewalk includes a condo hotel, eco hotel, adventure center, equine center and town center with shopping facilities in addition to homes.
