30 Bananas a Day!

I am growing bananas in Hawaii and love to share them... So far I have planted:

Blue-Skinned Ice Cream
Chinese Dwarf
Cuban Red
Dwarf Apple
Ice Cream
Silk Fig
and some as yet unidentified varieties...

My goal is 1000 banana plants, so I am only 7% of the way there! Who wants to come and help?

Our 90 acre farm is called The Shire and in addition to bananas we are planting orchards and taking care of the native rainforest. We also plan to add ponds for aquaponics. Our WWOOFing program is somewhat flexible, ranging from full time work exchange to part-time (3 hours a day) plus $100 for utilities (including hot shower) for campers. Additional financial contribution for access and use of a private room can be negotiated when available.

I would love to but I'm afraid I won't have the funds anytime soon to travel to Hawaii. One day... :-)

Great goal, Glen-Martin!
Do you have a site with a description of your wwoofing-style work exchange program?

Glen-Im down to plant. I NEED to go to Hawaii and I was actually planning to go in November/December when im done with my organic farming internship. Don't get me wrong bananas are delicious but there are other fruits that you got to grow in Hawaii man : J btw what island are you at? keep in touch, maybe we can actually work something out-Peace and Love
