Gardeners and botanists will have a chance to learn more about mango cultivation directly from experts, or to buy an award-winning mango tree. For families with little ones, the KidWay will be in charge of delivering some hands-on fun.

On Sunday, the main course will be offered at the Annual Mango Brunch, a fund-raising event that has grown into an essential appointment for any foodie spending their summer in Miami. This is also one of the most green-friendly food events in Miami, as proceeds from this event will help support Dr. David Fairchild's Tropical Fruit Program.
