How I Learned About The Moringa Tree
I first heard of the Moringa Tree this past spring when I was looking for alternatives to livestock feed.
I wanted something that was living, full of nutrients and non-GMO.
During my research, I learned that the leaves of this tree were good for making tea for us and the leaves contained huge amounts of vitamins, potassium, protein and calcium.
I was intrigued with this plant and decided I wanted to grow some both for my livestock, especially my rabbits and myself.
Moringa Tea Recipe
Moringa Tree is a very fast growing tropical tree and here in Indiana I keep it in a pot in the greenhouse during the winter months.
I received three roots from my friend Karen at Blue Yonder Urban Farms who, at the time, grew and sold both Moringa roots and the seeds in her shop.
