BT Eco Cultural Encounters

Tree of Life Tour

The coconut tree, known in the Philippines as "The Tree of Life" is the primary livelihood for many Filipino families. Each part of the tree has a benefit and a use, from its delicious milk inside its shells to the leaves that can be woven to make roofing materials.

The Tree of Life Tour, run by Bahay Tuluyan's young people, takes visitors through San Antonio, Quezon where families in the area make their living from the coconut tree. Participants explore the different home industries that revolve around the coconut tree, including the processing of coconut oil, the production of brooms and the 'milking' of the coconut to create tasty sweets. The Encounter ends with a delicious coconut based meal served under the shade of coconut trees.

Along the way, visitors will experience Filipino provincial life and the beauty of San Antonio, Quezon.
