Coconut trees are a delicious food and water source in Puerto Rico, and play a key role in protecting its coasts—come see how they can help you build your survival skills. With a hike through a beautiful palm forest, each hands-on workshop is unique and aims to include tips on edible plants, wildlife spotting, building an emergency shelter, and how to climb a coconut tree. Once you reach the top, you’ll learn how to pick a coconut, open it without a knife, and how it can be used as more than a refreshing drink.
Hi, my name is Brandon and I’m in love with coconuts. I studied at the University of Puerto Rico and received a certificate in Alternative Education. Island life sparked my interest in coconuts and soon I became so obsessed I researched the uses and health benefits associated with the palma de coco. This experience combines my passion with my background in education, resulting in a fun and easy workshop.
