Today was a day to learn something new. Well, I am not new to Moringa. I have long been an admirer. Though I have had a place in my heart for the tree, I have never grown one myself.
Before starting any new project, I research the heck out of it. I hate to try something new only to fail.
I called my friend Meg. I remember when she started growing Moringa trees several years ago. She was so excited and wanted to convert the world to its benefits. She still does. I was not quite ready back then. But I am now.
I gathered some friends to sit at her feet today and learn.
Meg was so generous, she brought about 50 seeds for each of us, some green moringa powder, some capsules filled with moringa powder and a huge branch off of her tree. This branch had blossoms and young pods. We tasted the leaves, the flowers and the pod. Yum. Kind of fruity, kind of spicy.
She taught us how to sprout the seed, and encourage a stick to grow. She taught us the many nutritional benefits, and how to baby it during the summer sun and cold winter.
Give me a couple of years. I will have a virtual food forest!
Thank you Moringa Seed Meg.
