MGC Chapter Meeting Tuesday, Nov. 20th from 6:30-8:30pm.
Greetings & Salutations Moringa Enthusiasts,
Since 2015, The Moringa Grower's C0-op has blossomed into a local share-cropping initiative with over 200+ locations growing moringa trees, as a community, throughout the surrounding Tampa Bay area.
Please Join the
The Moringa Grower’s Co-op utilizes barren landscapes to grow moringa trees, providing an abundance of material for soil regeneration and nutritional supplement for animal and human consumption.
Together with neighbors and landowners, the MGC has organized a network of small scale ecosystems to provide moringa trees in pots, fresh moringa greens, dried moringa leaf, powder and capsules, moringa seeds and moringa roots to sell at local health food stores and farmer’s markets in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Manatee Counties.
In return, MGC members receive refunds for providing access to harvest moringa trees on their property.
We're very excited to announce the completion of Florida CEED's Cooperative Entrpreneurship course, instructed by Executive Director Judith Turner.
