The students at the Honduras Hope Dormitory are growing moringa to be shared with people who have deficient food sources.  We distributed 150 seeds in January with an incentive to give the plants away in April and instruct others how to maintain, harvest and cook moringa.

You might want to visit your local health foods store and inquire amount the nutritional value of moringa.

  2. Thank you for your comment. I am using moringa in my smoothies but what I really need to boost my energy is a couple of days skiing. I see you are getting some joy on the bike. Looks like a great place.
