Youths plan pineapple farm

Thursday, March 20, 2014

YOUTHS of Salevukoso and Delaivadra on Druadrua Island in Macuata plan to turn a three-acre piece of land into a pineapple farm.

Salevukoso development committee chairman Uraia Viaturaga said the plan was among proposed projects to foster development on the island.

"We plan to start with a pineapple farm before we decide on other projects," he said.

"It might be a small-scale farm but the income will be able to improve the livelihoods of the youths and their families.

"We have a lot of resources here on the island and we just have to change our mind-set in order to utilise them well."

Mr Viaturaga said the women had also taken the first step in starting seaweed farms.
