November 2018 Report – Harvesting of Ripe Mangoes at MOET

We are in mango season and fruits are everywhere, being left to rot. MOET encourages wise utilization of food resources to sustain nutrition and enhance people‚Äôs health during fruit lean season. At MOET, the ripe fruits were collected in November to be prepared for both preservation and for sale. Mango fruit season starts in October, and depending on the variety of the mangoes, ends in January. By February, all the mangoes disappear and until now, there’s no initiative being taken to preserve them beyond their harvest season. Permaculture is bringing more fruits production at MOET and in the target villages
