Well my friends, it's that time of year again...what!?! Mango season you say???
Mmmm yes but it's also Mounts Botanical Gardens 2014 Tropical Fruit Festival "Taste of the Tropics"!!!
It's only on Saturday, June 28th from 10 am to 3 pm so be sure to put it on your calender!
Last year it was super hot, very humid & lots of sun! So like with any outdoor event here in South Florida always come prepared. Be sure to bring hat(s), sunscreen, sunglasses, camera, snacks, water & umbrella(s). I also brought a hand fan & boy was I glad since their wasn't much of a breeze that day. Also wear comfortable clothes that can breathe like shorts, t-shirts and
walking shoes as there is lots to see!
This event is in collaboration with the Palm Beach Chapter of the Rare Fruit Council International & sponsored by Whole Foods Market (Wellington location).
Their press release jargon goes a little something like this...
"Join us on a culinary journey around the world as we explore delicious tropical fruit. Exciting activities in the Garden include cooking demonstrations, guided tours, tropical fruit display featuring over 100 tropical fruits, tropical fruit samples, plus fruit and fruit trees will be available for purchase. Palm Beach County Extension Master Gardener Booth, Family and Consumer Sciences food displays,
food trucks and live music by DYMiN."
Mounts Botanical Garden is located on the west side of the Palm Beach International Airport.
I'M SOOOO EXCITED!!!
Let me know who is going so we can organize a "meet-up"!
Wishing everyone a great summer!
Happy Gardening & Best Wishes,
