Hey Cassie,

Is there any way that you might post the actual links for the videos?
I am coming up empty and would prefer to watch the vids that you recommend, rather than going on an Easter egg hunt.
Thanks!

Download successful. I needed to wait a few minutes for the file to populate, but I opened it and all is in tact.

THANKS VERY MUCH!!!

I'm looking for Camu Camu seeds source. Also, I know that they are related to Jaboticaba and I wonder if anyone has done a nutritional comparison on the fruits. Also I'd like to know if anyone has anyone incorporated Camu Camu in a Permaculture system.

I would love to introduce wild dandelions in my garden for medicinal/nutirtional purposes in southeast Florida. The wild dandeliion varieties that I am familiar with in Michigan, Ohio and California do not seem to grow here naturally. My plan is to grow the plants in pots and consume the leaves and most of the blossoms, so I will be growing them in a somewhat controlled manner. I would appreciate seeds if anyone has some to can spare.

Thanks!

Not that I know of. Moringa has general health benefits, not specifically weight loss. In my opinion, If you focus on improving nutrition and health, the weight naturally balances out.

I didn't read through all of the responses, but here's my solution and the best of both worlds. ANYONE, male or female, can pee into a container.

I keep a wide mouth plastic container next to my toilet that I use for collection and toss the TP into the toilet. This also reduces the need to flush. (It just so happens that I have a plumbing issue, which requires me to open and close the valve behind the toilet, so this is an added benefit to me until the plumbing issue is addressed.). Also, being forced to go outside to empty the container multiple times throughout the day when I might otherwise be chained to my computer, keeps me more connected to my gardens. The container is easy enough to rinse and reuse.

I still haven't convinced my partner to collect his pee, but I'm building my case, as the new tomato seedings that are some of the beneficiaries are looking mighty healthy, and they have received no other added fertilizer. I think they are enjoying the recycled vitamin B supplements that I have been taking.

Hi Steve,

That's great to know about the talapia and their preference for Moringa leaves. I have about 30 trees in various sizes, but from the same planting time. Some are in pots and two are growing directly in the ground. Only one tree (growing in the ground) has seeded, and that happened within the first year. All of the others have been cut back every couple months.

Hi Sam,

Please make sure that your stamped, self-addressed envelope is a well-padded jiffy pack type envelope, as the seeds are large and roundish.

I have Moringa Oleifera tree seeds for anyone who lives in tropical/subtropical climates. This important "Tree of Life" has many amazing health and environmental benefits and uses.

Plants are an important source of proteins, but most plants actually supply the units making up the proteins – the amino acids. Proteins are digested by the gastro-intestinal system and then cut into smaller, simpler units (amino acids) that can be absorbed through the walls of the intestines and used by the body. Since proteins and other nitrogen-containing substances are continuously depleted and rebuilt, they must be replaced by a continuous supply of amino acids from the diet.

There are 20 amino acids present in the human body’s structures. Of those, 9 are known to be ESSENTIAL; they have to be supplied by the diet since the human body cannot synthesize them, as it does with the other 11 amino acids. Few foods, like Moringa, are known to contain all 9 essential amino acids. The 9 essential amino acids are: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine. Moringa’s essential amino acids presence and digestibility scores are more than adequate when measured against the standards of World Health Organization (WHO), Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and United Nations Organization (UNO) for small children, the most at-risk population group when it comes to proteins in food.

Just send me a stamped, self-addressed envelope and I will return it to you with seeds.
