Dr Carol Phillips.

One such person was the United Caribbean Trust's (UCT) vice chair Dr Carol Phillips.

After careful consideration Dr Carol decided to invest her US $5 in our UCT Haiti Moringa Pilot Project and purchased 100 small grow bags.

Seen here Barabara Ann and Jenny Tryhane

Barbara Anne, the UCT PR Director was also one of the chosen candidates and she also decided to add her US $5 to Dr Carol's and purchase another 100 small grow bags - demonstrating the power of unity.

Jenny Tryhane, the founder of UCT decided to join forces with this team and matched the donation invested in a total of 300 Moringa grow bags!

These were taken to Haiti in January 2013 by Jenny as part of the UCT Moringa Pilot Project.

Jenny took the 300 grow bags to Haiti along with a 40 foot container packed with equipment and materials needed to establish an agricultural and vocational training program called 'A Sustainable Haitian Integrated Food Training (SHIFT) Project

Seen here Jenny obviously delighted to have their container in Les Cayes.

Seen here Jenny Tryhane founder of United Caribbean Trust

Successful farms have more than one enterprise and UCT will be encouraging a mixed farming enterprise to improve cash flow and reduce financial and business risk. The entire operation will be a model of ecologically sustainable agriculture.

One of the first efforts was to utilize the 300 grow bags, purchased with the US $15, and establish a Moringa Pilot Project.

Moringa is one the greatest gifts which Nature bestowed on man - this was known to the ancient world and they regarded the tree as a “Cure-all Tree”. They also saw the Moringa tree as an “Elixir of long life”, “the Tree of Immortality”, “the Tree of Life”, “the Never Die Tree”, “the Miracle Tree" and “Mother’s best friend”.

In Haiti it is called the Benolive tree (referring to the oil that can be squeezed out of the seeds)

Moringa

Nutritional analysis has shown that Moringa leaves are extremely nutritious especially when dried. There is a massive increase in vitamin content in the dried leaves compared to fresh green leaves except for vitamin C. (In green leaves there is 7 times more Vitamin C than in oranges.)

In dried leaves there are:

  • 17 times more Calcium in dry Moringa leaves than in milk
  • 10 times more Vitamin A in dry Moringa leaves than in carrots
  • 15 times more Potassium in dry Moringa leaves than in bananas
  • 25 times more iron in dry Moringa leaves than in spinach
  • 9 times the protein in dry Moringa leaves than in milk
Fruit
These leaves could be a great benefit to people who do not get protein from meat.

Another important point is that Moringa leaves contain all of the essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. It is very rare for a vegetable to contain all of these amino acids.

Moringa leaves could be a great benefit to the Haitians who do not get a lot of protein from meat.

Experts tell us that over 30% of children in Haiti are protein deficient.

Kwashiorkor is a severe protein deficiency, a malnourishment that kills 15% of Haitian children before their fifth birthday. Just one teaspoon of dried Moringa Leaf Meal (powder) three times a day can prevent and treat Kwashiorkor and save the lives of children in Haiti.

UCT Moringa Pilot Project:


Moringa seeds were sourced in Haiti and were soaked overnight prior to planting.

Moringa seeds are soaked overnight prior to planting just 1 cm below ground.

Each farmer involved in the Haiti Moringa Pilot project was given 300 seeds and 300 seed bags

A Haitian farmer was identified to be involved in the Haiti Moringa Pilot Project. He was given the 300 seeds and the 300 'seed bags donated by Dr Carol, Barbara Ann and Jenny all of who attended the ‘Financially Free Seminar’.

It took a few months to organize and lay the foundations but at last the 5 dollar challenge had been taken up.

Seen here Lucner Laine one of the farmers taking part in the UCT Moringa Pilot Project with his 300 grow bags and seeds from the 5 dollar challenge!

UCT also provided him and each of the three other farmers taking part in the Moringa Pilot Project with a wheelbarrow, fork, spade, hoe, peck, gloves and a cutlass.

Once the 300 Moringa had sprouted, they were watered once every other day, until they were about 18 inches tall.

Once the 300 Moringa had sprouted, they were watered until they were about 18 inches tall.

•The 300 plants were used as Living Fencing around Lucner's land, they were planted at 1 meter intervals and wire is to used between the trees once they become more established
• Existing trees had already been removed
• The land was well ploughed
• Manure application will be achieved by rabbit and chicken droppings as a by produce of The SHIFT Project.

Moringa trees can also be planted very close together as a field crop, at a spacing as close as ten centimeters.

When planted as a field crop Moringa can be harvested frequently. This technique produces a large amount of usable green matter from a relatively small amount of space.

Moringa trees can also be planted very close together as a field crop, at a spacing as close as ten to fifteen centimeters.

Moringa can be grown intensively with no irrigation and small amounts of fertilizer.

Moringa can be grown intensively with no irrigation and small amounts of fertilizer. It thrives well in dry, poor, sandy soil and is very drought tolerant making it ideally suitable for the arid areas in Haiti where other crops do not survive.

If the Moringa plantation is irrigated and fertilized harvesting can be achieved every 35 days—ten crops per year—with a total yield of 650 tons of green matter per hectare.The plants are harvested 10 cm above the base, and all of the leaves and green shoots can be used. This yield can be consistent from the same plants for seven years. This can meet the Vitamin A needs of 15,000 children!

If however the Moringa plantation is irrigated and fertilized harvesting can be achieved every 35 days—nine crops per year

Using this technique of intensive cultivation, plots of Moringa are planted on a rotation schedule, so that there is an ongoing supply of green matter.

Moringa pods


Moringa can be planted 1 meters apart, in rows that are at least 2 meters apart, for easy weed removal and walking through the rows. This will allow the Moringa to grow tall and mature.

These mature Moringa can provide pods for eating and seeds for propagation or the production of BenOil.

Moringa has been used for thousands of years by Africans and Indians to treat over 300 different diseases and ailments. It is a sustainable food source for third world countries where malnutrition is prevalent and UCT is excited about the potential of introducing it as part of our Haiti and Africa child sponsorship feeding program.

Regular use of Moringa can:

  1. lowers blood pressure
  2. enhance a feeling of well being
  3. treat stomach disorders.
  4. healthier bones, skin, teeth and nails
  5. treat diarrhea
  6. a stronger immune system
  7. boosts energy levels
  8. reduces blood sugar
  9. reduces osteoporosis
  10. plus more!

HOW TO USE THE LEAVES:

• Add fresh leaf or dry leaf powder to dishes like salads and soups.
• Brew delicious tea with Moringa Tea Leaf Powder.
• Add Moringa Leaf Powder to your favorite dip or sauce to give it a nutritional boost.
• Use natural and body-friendly cosmetic products like:
a.The Moringa Facial Mask.
b.Moringa Deodorant, Moringa Lip Balm and Moringa soap.
c.Moringa Oil is good for the body, inside and out!

HOW TO USE THE SEEDS:

Moringa seeds contain oil that can be used for cooking. It has a pleasant nutty taste, and never goes rancid and is used in fine machinery. BenOil burns clean and so is a good source for heat and light

Moringa seeds

The seed cake left over after extracting oil can be used as a protein-rich plant fertilizer and can also be used for water purification.

MORINGA AS ANIMAL FODDER:

Moringa leaves will be fed to the chickens, pigs and rabbits within the UCT SHIFT Project. Leaves can also be used as food for the Tilapia fish in the UCT Aquaponic Program..

Poultry production plays a major role in bridging the protein gap in developing countries where average daily consumption is far below recommended standards.

Poultry production plays a major role in bridging the protein gap in developing countries where average daily consumption is far below recommended standards.

However, the productivity of poultry in the tropics has been limited by scarcity and consequent high prices of the conventional chicken food.

Moringa leaf meals do not only serve as protein source but also provide some necessary vitamins, minerals and oxycaretenoids which cause yellow colour of broiler skin, shank and egg yolk. Feeding chickens with Moringa leaves and seeds will improve egg production.

The inclusion of Moringa Oleifera Leaf Meal up to 30% in the diet of chickens had no negative impact on body weight, health and mortality rate in birds.

Considering the high price of commercial poultry food the inclusion of Moringa and other leguminous leaves in the diets of chickens, such as Mulberry, is a real opportunity for chicken farmers to improve not only the productivity and nutritional status of their birds but also their income with a 50% saving.

Fattening pigs on 50% Moringa stems and leaves, 10% Leucaena, 38% Mulberry and 2% nutrient salts will lead to good growth rates and significant cost savings.

Moringa leaf meal (MOLM) could be used to improve daily weight gain in rabbits.


• Moringa Oleifera Leaf Meal (MOLM) could be used to improve daily weight gain in rabbits.
• Producing similar economic benefits as Soya Bean Meal (SBM) diet.
• MOLM is non-toxic to rabbits at least at the 20% diet inclusion level.
• It has the potential to reduce cholesterol level in blood and the meat of rabbits.

STEP 1- Harvesting:

Within less than six months our 300 special Moringa plants will be ready for the first harvest.

Step 3 - Picking:

Hats, masks, gloves and over coats are worn to comply with good food hygiene standards.

The washed Moringa leaves are then removed from the twigs. (These can be chopped into 10cm pieces and fed to sheep and goats)

Once removed the washed leaves are collected and placed in a large bowl.

Step 4 - Drying:

The leaves are now placed in the drying trays in the shade for 2 - 3 days.

The leaves are shifted around a few times per day to ensure a circulation of air.

The drying area must be rodent free and out of direct sunlight which will destroy the Vitamin A content.
