Growing Moringa Oleifera - the Wonder Tree

Development Aid from People to People in Zambia (DAPP) promotes growing of the Moringa tree.  The tree’s leaves: 1) can be harvested year-round and contain vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B3, protein, calcium, iron, zinc, and potassium; 2) have been found to improve health and promote weight gain in children; 3) provide a successful treatment for anemia during pregnancy; 5) improve the immune system; and 6) increase cattle milk and chicken egg yields.  The tree is especially valuable because it does not need a lot of water and it grows quickly.
