Pineapples Thriving at Las Palmas Children’s Village

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

Just received today – a report and pictures from the Las Palmas children’s village in the Dominican Republic.  The pineapple project is doing very well.  The report stated that “of the ones that have grown naturally without putting on a chemical to get them to germinate we have about 400.  But now, with the chemical product, about 6000 have germinated of the better plants.”   

In one of the photos below there are three pineapples on a table.  The report continued by saying “…you can see the three pineapples that we harvested today, whose value will be taken to the church as an offering of thanks.”
