Happy Noni Trees!

Aloha,
On the Farm Tours, we show people how we mulch, make compost, grow worms and use compost tea. A Noni tree normally produces fruit for 5 months, rests for 1 month and then produces fruit of another 5 months, and rests again the last month of the year. In other words, a Noni tree normally produces fruit for 10 months out of the year. Once we began performing all four practices (mulching, composting, worms and compost teas), our thousands of Noni trees for the past 8 years have never stopped producing fruit – 12 months a year for the past 8 years. Healthy soil equals happy trees!!
 
In Honor of Earth Day next month: Go Organic - Here's Why
The USDA conducted research on various fruits and vegetables for pesticide residues and here is what they found:
Berries - 52 different pesticides on blueberries and 54 different pesticides residues on strawberries. Many of these are neurotoxins and listed as "probable human carcinogens".
 
-Leafy Greens - detected 55 different pesticide residues on kale and 48 on fresh spinach.
-Potatoes - 37 pesticide residues on conventional potatoes
-Apples and Apple Juice - nearly 30 % of conventional apples were contaminated with a neurotoxic pesticide
 
This and more may be found in The Cultivator published by the Cornucopia Institute.

About the Author: Steve Frailey

My wife and I (Steve Frailey) moved to Kauai, Hawaii in 1982 from our organic farm in California. There were no roads, electricity, water or buildings but lots of Noni trees (Morinda Citrifolia) in our valley. We also developed a deep relationship with Noni that was growing all through our valley.  Today we run our Hawaiian Organic Noni farm, and share the gift of health with people throughout the world.
