2. The "Tree of Life"

The moringa tree is one of the rare plants that can grow and thrive in dry, depleted soils. Even in famine, moringa has sustained many undernourished populations. It adds essential nutrients to diets and helps revitalize the soil. Farmers plant it to restore forests, filter water, and more. Moringa trees grow year-round and help replenish nutrients in the soil. Decomposing trees further nourish the earth for other food sources in harsh landscapes.
