About Morning Gardens

Morning Gardens was founded by a mother-daughter team in Southwest Texas. Several years ago, we began growing Moringa in a small patch in our backyard. We intended at first only to grow a few trees here and there: just enough for our family.

Our small garden quickly grew larger, however, and now it covers a large portion of our yard.

We’ve been eating Moringa daily for years: in capsules, in recipes, in teas.

At first, we began using it mostly as an experiment. My mother said it was called the tree of life. I said you couldn’t believe everything you read on the internet. We wanted to decide the disagreement as scientifically as we could.

My mother won, as she almost always does.

Within weeks of daily use, aches and pains had started to disappear. I slept better than I had in years. My mother’s arthritis dimmed. I even started to feel calmer–a big deal for someone with an anxiety disorder.

Our family uses Moringa because it works. One of the reasons

I was so skeptical about its benefits at first, though, because most of the information my mother showed me was written piecemeal across twenty different websites, each more sketchy-looking than the last.

Even after I finally decided to do my own research, compiling information was a challenge; there didn’t seem to be a single site that answered all of the questions I had.

Morning Gardens began as a way to share our knowledge, research, and experience with anyone who wants to learn about Moringa. This website was created in March of 2019; it’s very much in a fledgling. We’ll be updating it at least three times a week until it’s finally grown large enough to flex its wings, though.

Thank you very much for being here.
