I am very grateful for the Gaia College courses because I can actually answer the questions that my clients have and sell them on things they didn't even know existed!

What is Organic Land Care?

Organic land care is the design, installation and maintenance of landscapes to promote and preserve environmental health both above and below ground.

These practices arise from the understanding that all organisms in nature are interdependent, and in order to have healthy plants we must foster the health of their entire ecosystem.

Organic land care practices go beyond integrated pest management, beyond the use of so-called organic fertilizers and pesticides. They acknowledge the concept of intrinsic health, and seek to create environments that cater to the well-being of all their inhabitants.

Organic land care professionals know that they are but stewards of the land, and can at best hope to work WITH nature, never to dominate it.

"As we deepen our imprint on the natural world, we increase our responsibility for it."
Dr. E.O. Wilson
