Moringa Tree Planters

Project Hope Art is ready to go with our Moringa Tree Planter Project using recycled materials! In this case, we have coffee sacks and wire coat hangers.

First, you take apart the hanger and make a circle. Then thread it through the open top of the coffee sack, which may have to get cut down depending on how large you want to make it. Use any excess wire to hang your planter!

I’m thrilled to share this experiment with the kids in Haiti! Much thanks to Urban Adamah and Dan’s Cleaners for donating supplies. :)

Why do we love the moringa tree so much?

The Moringa tree, also known as the Tree of Life, is known for it’s highly dense nutritional content:

  • 7 times the vitamin C in oranges,
  • 4 times the calcium in milk,
  • 4 times the vitamin A in carrots,
  • 2 times the protein in milk
  • 3 times the potassium in bananas.  
Moringa trees grow easily from seeds or cuttings in hot climates. They grow quickly even in poor soil and can be prepared in several different ways, making the moringa an excellent candidate for fighting world hunger and malnutrition.
