Project location: Imo State Nigeria
To boost our project, we have finally set up the long awaited Moringa Oleifera farm near Imo River, Okigwe, Nigeria. By developing the farm we seek to create a sustainable seed supply chain vital in domesticating clean water. The seed powder is a natural coagulant in the purification of waters with high turbidity and exotic impurities. We intend using the farm to boost the capacity of local farmers to cultivate and harvest high yielding Moringa Oleifera seed varieties. The farm is currently sitting on a 50 acres land within this period and at a planting distance of 1 meter x 1 meter or 500 plants per acre. A total of 50,000 Moringa plants is currently being grown on the farm. According to Mama Grace; a local villager, “Now we will no longer have problems getting the correct seed for our water”. RAWDP is grateful to all our donors for all their donations which have made this farm a reality. Please kindly let us know your suggestion if you know of a similar farm elsewhere! Thanks!
