Welcome / Akwaaba – Moringa Oleifera (The Moringa Tree)


Natural Moringa – The Miracle Tree

Akwaaba means welcome in Ghana, which is where we import our superior quality dried Moringa leaf from, organically grown in the beautifully rich fertile soil and lush landscape that Ghana is known for. The Moringa tree is not new to Ghana and as such there is an abundant supply and is Fairly Traded between the farmers and ourselves. The supplier of our high quality Moringa developed the Moringa production in Ghana with Lowell J. Fuglie,  Fuglie was an authority on Moringa oleifera working across Africa with Church World Service.

Since discovering the Moringa Oleifera (Moringa Tree) and it’s benefits, we have wanted to share this amazing gift and experiential knowledge with others. We distribute High Quality, organically grown Ghanaian Moringa Tea, Moringa Powder and Moringa Soap from  Moringa leaves. In doing so we support the many Ghanaian farmers and their communities. Our Moringa is grown and harvested throughout many regions of Ghana without the use of pesticides or any other un-natural interventions. To facilitate this, the natural organic agricultural system of Permaculture is employed. This GUARANTEES a Superior Quality, completely ORGANIC product.

Two of the Permaculture systems employed for Moringa Oleifera are Alley Cropping and Food Forests, these methods allow a variety of crops to grow side by side in harmony and allows the plants to benefit from one another. Moringa Oleifera is a fast-growing, hardy pioneer tree that grows well in degraded soil, plus it is also a legume – meaning it fixes nitrogen into the soil from gas it captures in the air. This means that Moringa Oleifera (The Moringa Tree) is a fertilizer tree and an excellent companion for other plants growing nearby, as they benefit from the nitrogen. The freshly picked Moringa Leaves are dried for Moringa Tea and Moringa Powder.

Sankofa Symbol   Sankofa
 

The Sankofa is a well known and often used Adinkra symbol of Ghana which means “return and get it”, it is a symbol of the importance of learning from the past. We think it is very appropriate with regard to Moringa as it is a tree that is being re-introduced into the modern world for the enormous benefits of mankind.
