RiceKitchen-1

Author: Coert

Start of the construction of two rice kitchens at Thomas Gowor farm near Gbedin. The rice kitchen is the traditional store of upland rice. It consists of a raised platform with thatch roof under which often the family cooking takes place. The hand-cut panicles of the rice are tied in bundles which are then stacked on the platform after field drying. The heat of the cooking fire probably helps to some extent in keeping the bundles dry but the supposedly insect-repellent action of the smoke turns out to be no more than wishful thinking.
The stores were constructed for storage trials by FAO/Ministry of Agriculture supervised by C.Harry Wiles (in picture with beard).
