  1. I’m in Lehigh Acres Florida (about 20-30 minutes away from Echo in Ft.
    Myers) .. I’ve been in the process of turning my backyard into an organic
    food garden. I’ve made about 7 raised beds so far. I have a Tommy Atkins
    Mango tree, a Loquat tree, a Florida Prince Peach tree, a Papaya tree, and
    a Grumichama tree… I still have lots of room for a few Banana trees and
    Moringa trees too…. I’m only on my 2nd year of gardening, so it’s been an
    extremely excellent learning experience´╗┐

  2. Love the videos!´╗┐

  3. I have more than 40 baby moringa trees growing in a big deep pot 2′
    diameter 3′ deep. Is this a bad idea? biggest one is about 9 inches so
    **update** they are doing great in my big pots from homey depot. about
    1-1/2 feet tall now from seeds.´╗┐

  4. I have three Moringa seedlings growing! …in Maine :)

  5. i just planted my first moringa tree from benders grove here in florida and
    ive noticed that some of the bottom part of the six foot tree is turning
    yellow. why? and what should i do about it????

    It makes me sad that Funkey Chicken farm is getting credit for these Earth
    Boxes. :( She was just a member on an Earthbox forum. What she is doing is
    great helping more people grow in an easy way. She is really capitalizing
    on free knowledge but its the service of bringing it to you that you are
    paying for. She is even selling heirloom seeds she harvest herself, which
    is also great. I use to grow the Rozelle but lost it over time. Id love to
    get some seeds again.

  13. Which do you prefer to grow in…hydroponics grow tents. We’ve found soil
    to be the best during arecent smaple/focus grat.

  14. moringga roots really easy. just stick them in the ground and they’ll grow
    just about anywhere. great in soups, with chicken and seafood.

  15. I am growing Moringa in Jacksonville, FL. It grows really quickly

  16. Love the videos thanks for sharing,What i need to know is what i can grow
    to get the best source of iron?

  17. Good Better Best! ;) I like that you encourage people to grow in general,
    not only the way YOU do it!

    There are many reasons for living longer. Living longer is not necessarily
    living BETTER. You can live long, but be in a nursing home with a very poor
    QUALITY of life. Many of the “living” longer nowdays has to do with western
    medicine. Living Long and Living Healthy is best. The old addage is true..
    you are what you eat.. Most people eat “junk” and “processed” food.. So
    what are they? We should all eat the freshest and highest quality food as
    possible for the highest quality of life.

  19. Check out Larry Hall on YouTube. Has great system using rain gutters and
    buckets and grow bags (the blue bags from Wal-Mart).

  20. Hi John! i hear many ways to choose good food to eat. food that is closest
    to nature, raw and organic. looking back in time and comparing to nowadays,
    many more foods are unnatural in the world today. then i always hear,
    “humans are expected to live longer nowadays compared to back then.” in
    your opinion, is this because the health treatments and medicines are
    better in today’s society, or does this have something to do with the
    nutrients in the majority of food? Thanks for the great information

  21. My neighbor throw away picnic coolers often I use them the same way as an
    Earth or Global Box. It’s a great way of reusing them for another purpose
    beside landfill in dump sites. I use them for my herbal boxes. I might grow
    tomatoes in them. Love his special garden. Potting mix is lighter because
    it’s a blend of compose material and perlite. Love that mircle grow myself.
    Buy it when it’s onsale.

  22. Good ideas! And your a firefighter, even better!

  23. I have three moringa trees and eat it stir-fry in olive oil several times a
    week. I really like the taste.
