The Coco de Mer (Lodoicea maldivica) is a rare palm tree from the Seychelles, which grows the world's largest wild fruit, containing the world's largest seed.

The fruit may be 40-50cm in diameter and can weigh up to 30kg. They take 6 or 7 years to grow and ripen, and the seed takes 2 years to germinate.

As you might expect, the flowers that produce those fruit are huge – the largest of any palm tree. When it germinates, the cotyledons which sprout from these seeds can be up to 4m in length!

Everyone is artistic. Release your imagination and your creativity.

"When a vision comes from the thunder beings of the west, it comes with terror like a thunder storm; but when the storm of vision has passed, the world is greenier and happier; for wherever the truth of vision comes upon the world, it is like a rain. The world, you see, is happier after the terror of the storm." Black Elk Oglala Sioux

You might think you can run, so far far away

But you hurt my trees and now I’ll make you pay

I don’t bring armies or money to this battle of wills

But what I do have

is a very particular set of skills

Recycle what you can whenever you may!

Compost all those peels and throw less away!

Reduce and reuse and recycle, my chums!

Or I’ll use my pliers to take off your thumbs

So a moose wandered into our hospital to eat plants in the entrance yesterday

The more things you get, the more you want.

Our minds are integral parts of the eternal and infinitely creative mind that brings forth the universe. And of every power that exists, by far the greatest power is love.
