Moringa flower honey with BlueGoldWorks? There are nine different Moringa tree species in Southern Africa, north-eastern Africa, Madagascar and India. However, the only endemic Southern African Moringa species is the Moringa ovalifolia. This tree naturally grows in Namibia. It extends from the escarpment mountains northwest of Keetmanshoop to the Kaokoveld in the north. Even as far as in southern Angola. It often grows alongside the Baobab tree, and its habitat consists mainly of the desert or arid savannah vegetation. These trees can grow up to 7m tall, with soft whitish bark, oval leaves and long triangular seed pods. Here at The Growcery Camp, we have been able to cultivate this specific species of Moringa from seed. The seeds of our Moringa Trees are the Moringa waterhole at Halali in Etosha National Park, Namibia.
Blue Gold Works Inc. (BGW) is a for profit company that harvests and sells products derived from the Moringa tree, grown sustainably by African farmers.

When I became a mother, I had an epiphany. Now and forever, I am linked in a chain of humanity responsible for creating a safer, healthier planet for the next generation. That is our legacy. Where, I asked myself, should I focus my efforts for the greatest impact? The provision of clean, safe, drinking water is today’s most complicated, most intractable global problem. Two billion people on our planet don’t have ready access to safe drinking water. In the developing world, sixty percent of deaths of children under the age of five are from waterborne illnesses. Girls endanger themselves walking hours every day fetching water, giving up their chance for education and diminishing their future earning power. Billions of dollars in International Aid has utterly failed to sustainably build and maintain water treatment plants or dig wells. Nations are already in conflict over diminishing water supplies. Poor health, little education, grinding poverty, strife. The cycle repeats.

While the coconut has gained the reputation as the “Tree of Life”, it is difficult to dispute the life-giving properties of what is now called the “miracle tree.” These “miracles” of people recovering from disease while enjoying the medicinal effect of moringa, are thought to come from the dense nutrients found especially in moringa oleifera leaves. Much of this is said to come from its various antioxidants—not just its vitamin C and beta-carotene—but also from its having quercetin, chlorogenic acid, and even chlorophyll. Evidence that these antioxidants are making a practical difference come from a study (Kushwaha et al. 2014) of women taking 1.5 teaspoons (7 grams) of moringa leaf powder every day for three months. In the end they showed significantly increased blood antioxidant levels. Taking advantage of moringa extracts is not limited to people living in disadvantaged regions. It is a medicinal plant that benefits people in all corners of the planet. See additional details at https://www.bluegoldworks.com/.
