Summer fruit harvest
Mount Rosary has a great variety of fruit plants and trees. Every Summer the workers and inmates harvest them together and celebrate the richness and generosity of nature.
Sr Celestine and her student who is in Summer holidays enjoy to harvest the mangoes together.
The mangoes are not only tasty for Mount Rosary`s members and inmates but our neighbours also enjoy the chemical-free fruits.
Anyone can learn the art of collecting mangoes from tree manually which is also a fun task.
The kind of Mango we harvest is green outside but when cut open it`s orange, juicy and sweet inside.
Jackfruit harvesting is a community work. To pluck the fruit is easy but that is only the first step. After that it needs to be cut into pieces and the edible parts seperated from the shell and skin. This is done by inmates, sisters and our volunteer alltogether. While cleaning the jackfruit conversations go on, laughter is heard and there is a general atmosphere of joy and cohesion. So one could say it is more of a community activity than work. In the end, the jackfruit-flesh is conserved in salt to later cook curry or if ripe enough consumed directly.
