Why am I so excited about Moringa Olefera also knows as the Drumstick Tree or the Tree of Life?
There is so much data that I spent almost a whole day researching! I'm now a big fan, so much so that I even bought some seeds. Guess what? This plant will thrive in the desert climate of Arizona Southwest! I'm so thrilled for many reasons, mainly because it has so much nutrition and healing properties and it grows so fast! I'm fed up with big agribusiness, compromising our food sources so to find a plant that has not been polluted is extremely important to me. The Moringa Olefera doesn't grow in cold climates, however there are many good sources of this superfood available, it is also in ZEAL which I'm very thankful for.
You'll probably be hearing more about this plant from me in future posts. I'm planning on growing some in my own backyard! Stay tuned!
