Pineapple Plantation Field Trip

On Friday, November 17th, The Greenhouse took a field trip to a village outside of Yaounde to visit a pineapple plantation.

We had to travel a long way off the main road.

Pastor Valentine, known as Pastor Pineapple to the local people, is growing pineapples to help support his family while he is starting a new church.

Each section of the fields are marked with the date and number of pineapple plants. This section (B7) was planted on May 5, 2017 and contains 18,000 pineapple plants.

Every family was given a pineapple plant to take home and plant for themselves.

Pineapples plants can take up to 18 months to produce ONE pineapple.
