Pineapple Crate
The Pineapple Crate is a co-working space strategically located in Wahiawa, HI near the Whitmore village in the heart of Oahu's historic Dole pineapple plantation.  The Pineapple Crate is available to agriculturists, agriculturally-based entrepreneurs, food processors, value-added farm/food producers, and community members.  Most importantly, the Pineapple Crate will provide 21st century technological support, build capacity and promote the development and use of state-of-the-art farming practices and methodologies designed to increase agricultural production, processing, and marketing efficacy and efficiency.
