Moringa Training is one of the most important parts of our work.  Since 1998 Mariko has been learning from and being guided by this amazing miracle tree.  It has become essential for more people to spread the word and work with Moringa.  Mariko has developed The Moringa Quality Protocol for creating the highest quality Moringa possible.  Students learn to quiet the mind and cultivate their own inner voice and recognize the messages from Moringa.  See the course descriptions below to find the one best suited for you.

A Moringa Tree for Everyone
Grow the Miracle Tree, the most nutritious plant ever tested!
One of our main goals is to have Moringa planted in every home, farm and community. There is so much to learn about the amazing Miracle Tree so you have to start with the basics. How can you get started with a Moringa tree in your balcony, yard or farm? This is a mini module on what you need to know to start. Find out when your Moringa growing season is. Learn from our mistakes so you can be successful. Once you have Moringa growing, you will be curious to learn more and more. That is how I began 24 years ago. I started 25 seeds in my greenhouse and the rest is history. Even if you live in a cold climate, there is a Moringa season for you.

About me

Hi, I’m Mariko Gifford, your Moringa Mentor

I was in search of a plant with the highest amount of nutrition.  It took a while before I found Moringa in a Perennial seed catalog.  The description said “The Most Nutritious Plant on Earth” That began my journey with Moringa, The Miracle Tree. That was 1998.  I have learned so much about this amazing tree.  In particular with the intelligence of the tree.  It has become a guide for much of my work.  It was clear from the beginning that I would teach others how to work with Moringa in this way too.

What my students say

The course structure is well set up. I got to meet a group of amazing people, whom I am very excited to journey with. Teachers are caring, kind and very helpful. I really loved the flexibility of our teacher, Mariko Gifford. I enjoyed all the topics provided weekly and the presentations and assignments were really helpful as they persuaded me to work hard and get as much knowledge as I can. I highly recommend this amazing course because it is very educational.

The course content far exceeded my expectations – we learnt so many things in such a short space of time including permaculture & soil biology and how these fit into Mariko’s ‘Moringa Protocol’ for growing the highest quality, most nutritious Moringa on the planet. On top of this, Mariko was available for one-on-one sessions with each course participant as well as holding weekly Zoom calls with all the students where we discussed the previous week’s course material & got to know each other. A highlight was meeting so many lovely people from all over the world & sharing our new found reverence for this miracle tree.

I found the course very exciting and interesting.The resources were excellent and very user friendly.(except the Bee Queen?) As it unfolded the worksheets made me go back and read and get ready for the Quiz.
The updates with Mariko and the other students were great fun as we got to know each other.You connected the world with love of moringa.
Mariko you too with your family have brought light in to my life at a time I felt I had to find a new way in a bit of a haze I was in.(Because I had lost my husband of 40 years and all my three chhildren were away abroad and they could not come home due to COVID19.)
I believe we can help change the way people look at themselves and the plants and other living beings.
