2014 Mar: Baobab seedlings get big ideas!

In November last year EcoProducts did a workshop with 50 rural women harvesters in how to grow and conserve baobabs.  Each woman was given a seed and a planting bag to take home.  Well, when I visited the village this week, some of the women took me to see their so- called seedlings.  They had successfully germinated and had grown very fast into strapping little baobab trees!  They need another year or two before they are tall enough to survive goat browse and then we will plant them out. This is all part of a wider baobab tree conservation program. Here's a photo of Blessing with her little tree.

  1. I have always had a passion for Baobab trees and for many years wondered where I would be able to find Baobab seedlings, or seeds.
    We live in Constantia, Cape Town, and I am prepared to take all the necessary steps and precautions to give the trees the conditions ideal for their growth. Could you give me an indication of price per tree and mode of delivery to our property.
    Besides, I produce a range of herbal seasonings and I am in the process of creating a new Traditional herbal product for which I would require a bulk price and quantity details for your Baobab Powder.
    Looking forward to your reply,
    Kind regards,
