THE COCONUT

We wanted our name to have meaning.  Symbolically, the Coconut is a part of the fabric of the Hawaiian culture which has a deep significance to us.  The coconut has qualities we aim to personify.  It is useful, unique, it is male and female, it has spiritual significance, it is versatile, and it is a little mysterious.  We nicknamed our beloved coconut, and before we knew it, Coco’s Trading Post had her name.

USEFUL

Often called the tree of life, the coconut and can produce drink, fiber, food, fuel, utensils, musical instruments and much more.

UNIQUE

Botanically, the coconut palm is not a tree since there is no bark, no branches or secondary growth. A coconut palm is a woody perennial monocotyledon with the trunk being the stem.

MALE / FEMALE

From a reproductive point of view, a seed has the “baby” plant inside, with two basic parts: the embryo root (hypocotyl) and the embryo leaves (epicotyl).

SPIRITUAL

The Hawaiians believed it pointed to the Gods above.

VERSATILE

The coconut is a fruit, a nut and a seed.

MYSTERIOUS

Scientists are still baffled as to where the coconut originated. They believe it is from the Old World Indian Archipelago or Polynesia.

Why did we start CTP?

Coco’s Trading Post believes in giving back. We have chosen to give back by offering jobs, job training, and trade skill training to teens from troubled childhoods.  We feel there was a need to help these children build confidence by gaining trade skills and learning to earn money for themselves.
