If you are reading this than you recognize that being prepared and living a preparedness lifestyle is purposeful and intentional. It does not happen by accident and it does not happen without of bit of work coupled with time and resources. Read more

“He who plants a coconut tree, plants food and drink, vessels and clothing, a home for himself and a heritage for his children.” ~ South Seas saying

Chances are, you pass right by an amazing, versatile, and nutritious item in your local market without giving it much thought – the coconut.

Commonly referred to as a fruit, a nut, or a seed, the furry-looking coconut is botanically classified as a drupe, which is a fruit with a hard covering enclosing the seed. Other drupes include peaches, plums, and cherries.

Coconuts are often called the “Tree of Life” because every part of the drupe and tree can be used.

The plant not only supplies food for millions of people, but also can be used to make skincare products, household cleaners, toys, instruments, furniture, housing, bowls, utensils, lighting fixtures, baskets, utility boxes, gardening planters, mattresses, draperies, upholstery, chicken feed, carbon-based water filters, and bio-diesel fuels.
