These flowers are for you

Thank you!

To all of you who donated on #givingtuesday.

This bouquet of moringa flowers is for you!

Some reports are (to be) to short, so here it is: Most parts of the Moringa tree are edible: leaves, seedpods, roots, and yes, the flowers. Children in our villages have developed a keen liking for a new sweet treat: Moringa flowers. Children love to pick and eat the flowers right off the tree. A tasty sweet treat from a tree that can make thousands of flowers a year, growing (hopefully) right next to your house.

Moringa flowers have sweet and faint lovely fragrant smell. It makes a great tea. Moringa flowers may not win a beauty contest but sure are good for you. The flowers can be quite pungent raw, but blanched make a great addition to a salad. The fast growing wood can be used as firewood or to plant new tress. More about Moringa on our website.
