DIY Root Washer Construction Classes

Do it yourself! Join Kyle Manke, with the S.D. Specialty Producer Association, to learn how to build a root washing system for your vegetable operation.

The construction demonstration is offered in two locations in October.

  • Bear Butte Gardens near Sturgis, S.D. on Sat., Oct. 9, 2021 at 1-4 p.m. mountain time.
  • Garden Gate, LLC near Yankton, S.D. on Sat., Oct. 23, 2021 at 2-5 p.m. central time. 

During this demonstration, Manke will construct a mechanical root washing machine that allows for vegetables such as carrots, turnips, beets and other roots to be efficiently rinsed of soil and debris. Spend less time processing root crops for sale by using this machine to rinse your crop in a food-safe way.

Attendees will go home with the blueprints, directions, tips, and knowledge of how to build a root washing machine for their own produce.
