Have you noticed something tropical growing outside of the Grant building? Thanks to head gardener Barrie Agar's talented green thumb there are two pineapples growing on campus, and 10 more plants waiting to fruit in the glasshouse. She shares tips on cultivating pineapples (this one took three years to produce fruit) and some pineapple history from England (growing the fruit used to be a status symbol).

Fast forward to the 20:30 minute mark to hear the interview with CFAX host Ryan Price.
