Angkor Moringa

Run Ta Ek Eco Village, the place where Angkor Moringa is produced, is located about 20 km from Angkor Wat. The ruins of Angkor Wat were registered as a World Heritage Site in December 1955, but a unique feature of this site is that protection extends not only to the ruins, but also to the forests (nature) and villages (residents). The APSARA authority which manages the ruins has established eco villages as a buffer zone for preventing chaotic development, and environmental degradation due to agricultural chemicals and other pollutants. Settlement zones with cropland have been established to prevent an increase in population, and promote migration away from the area around the ruins. While encouraging migration of residents from the Natural Heritage Area, organic farming is practiced to establish infrastructure for daily life. For that purpose, various tasks are being carried out by a team of experts from the agriculture departments of universities. These include: organic soil design, use of plant repellents, installation of an irrigation system covering the cultivation area (enabling stable cultivation even in the dry season), selection of cultivated products, and development of sales channels. The first cultivated product for earning income is Angkor Moringa, also known as the “tree of miracles.”
