The neem, declared by the United Nations as the ‘tree for the 21st century’ is a hardy, drought resistant tree that thrives in poor soil conditions and has many medicinal properties. It provides generous shade and oxygen to those who rest under it, as well as producing pesticides to keep plants healthy in its vicinity. We hope to follow in the footsteps of our namesake and thrive under difficult market conditions, providing much food for thought through our adult and children’s lists.
