Mango sea­son to be cel­e­brated at school fes­ti­val

The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

THE Bindoon Pri­mary School Fete and Mango Fes­ti­val will cel­e­brate the start of the 2017 south­ern mango sea­son on the first week­end in April.

With the help of lo­cal grow­ers, the school’s mango-themed fete at its Learn­ers Way ground on Satur­day will in­clude home­made jams, chut­neys, trays of fruit and a mango menu.

Un­usual con­di­tions de­layed the sea­son by more than a month, with pick­ing now un­der­way around Gin­gin, Bindoon and Dan­dara­gan.

Avalon Or­chard own­ers Jenny and Tony Mad­dern, who are sup­ply­ing the $30 mango trays for the school to sell, were re­lieved fruit was fi­nally show­ing signs of readi­ness.

Bindoon stu­dents re­cently col­lected some from the prop­erty to do­nate for the fes­ti­val’s mango menu.

“We are thrilled to be col­lab­o­rat­ing with the school to sell our lo­cal pro­duce; it’s a win-win for ev­ery­one,” Mr Mad­dern said.
