2015 Pink Pineapple Project at Retro Farms

On Saturday, October 24th (today) we had an awesome, fun-filled morning at Retro Farms, located in Moloa’a, Anahola.  The day started early as we had to get there early to check in.  When we arrived, we were shuttled up to registration then up to the location where we spent our day.  The first stop, was the smoothy station for some yummy tasting smoothies.  Next up, was pineapple-up-side-down cake tasting at a location with beautiful ocean scenery.  That is where we began the program by forming a circle and breaking up into groups.IMG_3083

Of course, we had to stop for some picture-taking along the way.  The sun was out, the sky was beautifully blue and the view was just awesome.

Our group began by learning about and planting coffee plants…

Then, we moved on over to do some crafts… we painted on tree carvings to make a personalized necklace as memorabilia.

Then we gathered for some thought-provoking hand work.  This is basically where we ended our day.

Our take-away for the day, as written on a card which was gifted to each of us as we departed:

“I am a girl…  I am smart and I am strong… and I can do ANYTHING.”

Thank you Retro Farms for providing us with this opportunity of learning and growth.  We appreciate it very much!
