moringa grind...

Products made from the Moringa tree (Moringa oleifera) are said to have many healthful and beneficial properties.

Every part of the tree is considered useful. A "Moringa Festival" was organized in the village of NotsŤ recently to celebrate the plant, and to educate people on its cultivation and many benefits. The women above are showing how to grind the seed pods into a paste, which may then be used to extract oil.

The festival motto was "Plantons, Mangeons, Vivons": we plant, we eat, we live!
