Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. In a small bowl, mix chopped rhubarb with 1/2 cup sugar; set aside. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.

Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Fold in the rhubarb mixture. Stir in the coconut and chopped almonds. Pour batter into prepared pan.
