Landscaping

The cooperation is beneficial to both the farmer and Jungle Bay resort. Joey supplies Jungle Bay with Moringa Oleifera seedlings which are planted all over the resort as fast-growing ornamental trees.

Moringa Wellness Products

Once the trees are mature enough for harvesting Joey prunes the branches and takes the cuttings to his home for his family to process into nutritional extracts, soaps, and other products.

  Joey’s products are then sold to Jungle Bay guests under the “Nature Farm’s” label! Joey adds value to his products and to the Jungle Bay guest experience by providing lectures on the cultivation and nutritional value of Moringa.  

Community Partnership

Joey is so excited about this relationship because it provides him with an 18-acre farm and lots of customers eager to purchase his products.Jungle Bay is very excited because it enables the resort to support the local community in a way that is also beneficial to the resort.
