Nutritional Project Well under way

Harvesting Moringa
Harvesting Moringa

Since starting this project we have learned a lot about Moringa and Amarinth... it is not as straight forward as one thinks or as is reported on in other countries. It is only by trying different approaches that we have a result which is reaping the rewards we had hoped.

As it is now the wet season things have slowed down considerably but as the photos will show the Moringa is doing well. It is being harvested and used in soups and many other dishes with great excitement. We continue to cultivate more trees and with time it is envisaged every household will have at least 1 or 2 tress to harvest.

Amarinth has been harvested and is being used to grow for the next dry season as we need to increase the crop size, as a few bushes is not sufficient to feed a family and given we started with a small amount of seed we have had to build up our stock... results are looking very positive indeed.

Photos will be uploaded as we get them edited for size etc. and I hope to have a library on our web site of the progress of the trees so check out our web site and photo albums.
