Malawi is being deforested because trees are cut for firewood. Resulting erosion depletes the soil of nutrients. Planting Moringa trees helps to correct this situation. Also, these trees provide numerous medicinal benefits. Moringa leaves are a powerhouse of nutrition. Gram for gram, they contain 7 times the vitamin C in oranges, 4 times the calcium in milk and 3 times the iron in spinach.
Moringa can also be used for food for livestock, and as an enhancer to plant growth. Seedlings can be purchased and planted for $1 each. For example $50 will buy 50 seedlings.
