We sell pineapple tops because they are a plentiful and readily available resource for all of us to share the benefits.
A cut off pineapple top takes a looong time to grow. Your new housemate will take around 24 months to fruit and then another 6 months to mature. You will grow patience with time grasshopper.
As a happy duty of care, we organise ourselves in the shade of a tree, in the company of others and pot up pineapples. Meaningful employment for support workers and participants. We then sell the pineapples and pass on 100% of the proceeds.
