The experience is split into two parts, “Going Coco Loco” and “Tropical Urban Farming”. The first part of the experience will focus on you learning how to harvest, open, drink, eat, and use nature’s most important tropical plant and food, the coconut. You will learn a few different techniques for how to properly open coconuts along with how to drink and eat the pulp. You will also be given a demonstration on how we make homemade coconut milk of which you will be able to sample once finished. And when it comes to the coconut water, don’t feel shy about asking for seconds or thirds as there will be enough cocos for every guest to enjoy. Once you have fully experienced the coconut we will move on to the second part of the experience, “Tropical Urban Farming”. This part of the experience will focus on educating you on how to identify, maintain, harvest, and use some of the 50 different types of tropical plants we grow here at our humble urban farm. Throughout the garden tour you will be able to hand pick and taste many of the seasonably available foods. We will finish the experience by enjoying a nice cup of tea that is made fresh from the garden.
My name is Matt and I will be your host for this edible garden tour here in tropical South Florida (SoFlo). For the past 4 years I have been transforming my standard grass covered yard into a tropical urban farm of over 50 different types of edible tropical plants that span 5 continents and influence hundreds of cultures. During those years I also owned/operated a landscape design company, spent hundreds of hours educating myself about edible plants, practiced different gardening methods used throughout the tropics, and expanded my culinary knowledge and taste buds to better enjoy the tropics.
I will cut out fresh coconut pulp/flesh for you to enjoy.
I will pour fresh coconut water, make homemade coconut milk, and brew a herbal tea from the farm.
The entire experience will take place in my backyard at the Tropical Urban Farm in central Boca Raton.
