When you have a dream....keep on dreaming and it will become reality.
The dream started a little over 2 years ago when I came across the Baobab tree in my ongoing research of plants. The tree has taken me on a journey like no other. Initially I was fascinated with the incredible nutritional benefits of its fruit, but when I learned more about the people that live among these trees it dawned on me that I could possibly make a difference in a profound way.
The trees grow in the savanna, one of the driest places in the world and unfavorable to growing productive crops. So I connected with communities in Northern Ghana, we conducted an impact evaluation, and realized that by sustainably harvesting Baobab fruit they would greatly benefit.
What amazes me is that these trees can be over 1000 years old, grow in the harshest environment, and bear the most nutrient rich fruit that I have ever come across. It is as if the Baobab tree figured out how to organize its nutrient make-up in order to endure the demands of the savanna. Truly nature’s intelligence at work.
You can now add this great tasting nutrient powerhouse to your daily health routine and know that you are making a difference for yourself - and several communities in Northern Ghana.
