Mangoes: From Tree To Tricia

The mature mango trees on the Village of Hope Mwanza compound are beginning to produce mangoes much to Tricia’s delight. The harvesting method is simple but effective. Take a long stick and knock them down and if this doesn’t work then climb the tree.

The mangoes fall to the ground and are gathered in piles. A staff member then uses a wheelbarrow to get them away from Tricia as soon as possible and to the children. But if you are lucky you get to try one fresh right off the tree!
