Spring Planting and Moringa Tree Workshop This Sunday

What great weather we are having now!  There may still be a frost lurking until the end of this month, but it is unlikely.  So it is time to bring out some plants and start putting them into the ground.  We will have several types of plants to get in, but we want to focus on the Moringa Tree.

Moringa Oleifera is the best known of the thirteen species of the genus Moringaceae. Moringa was highly valued in the ancient world. The Romans, Greeks and Egyptians extracted edible oil from the seeds and used it for perfume and skin lotion. In 19th century, plantations of Moringa in the West Indies exported the oil to Europe for perfumes and lubricants for machinery. People in the Indian sub-continent have long used Moringa pods for food. The edible leaves are eaten throughout West Africa and parts of Asia.

Moringa is a vegetable tree that is extremely nutritious and has many potential and healthy uses. The Moringa tree is believed by many to be the most giving plant in all of nature. It is loaded with nutrients, antioxidants and healthy proteins. Moringa is quite possibly the most amazing plant that anyone has ever studied.

Moringa is more than a super food. It is a food and commercial resource that can change peoples lives. There are many serious social workers, NGO’s, missionaries, doctors and research scientists and just regular people that are realizing and exploiting it’s potential for alleviating suffering around the world, taking advantage of its rapid growth and outstanding nutritional profile to improve lives.

Moringa Oleifera (Moringa) is called the Tree of Life or the Magic Tree because it is one a nature’s most nutritious foods. The powder in the Moringa leaf is containing over 90 nutrients and 46 antioxidants along with all of the essential amino acids.

Gram for gram Moringa contains 9 times the Iron of Spinach, 2 times the Vitamin A of Carrots, 2 Times the Protein of Yogurt, 14 Times the Calcium of Milk, 4 Times the Fiber of Oats, 4 Times the Potassium of Bananas, and so on.
Last year we sold, planted, or grew out several thousand for the public and we will do it again this year. We will put some into our food forest due to the warm weather, and we will have about a dozen or so trees ready for sale at the village. The small ones are just $9.99 each and we will also have some seeds for those who want to do their own and we can take orders for larger ones or larger amount for the following week.  Plus we will show you and tell you about how to plant, grow, and harvest it, even if you have an apartment or small lot.  We also have some magic water tricks and secret ingredients that make ours the best in the world, and will divulge that only to those who come out. Don't miss this FREE workshop that starts at 10 AM. We will also have a pot luck lunch (bring a casual lunch dish, desert, or drink or just come anyway) starting at 12 ish.  If you haven't visited the village feel free to hike our paths and also see phase two that will open in April or May.

    Greetings~ I am unable to attend (have to "work") but I will participate in future gatherings soon !
    I wanted to mention that I left a "cob" of dried Sacred Hopi BLUE corn in the community center (on the kitchen counter next to Dave's propane stove" during the Solstice Potluck. )
    If you found it, and still have it, please Plant it there when the time comes to plant corn.... or share with someone who will care for it.
    I have more, but it is "authentic" organic sacred Hopi Blue corn....
    and just planted some of it today!
    if it is lost, it found its way to a new home... :-)
