It's incredible the changes that have happened in my life because of the Organic Master Gardener Course I signed up for in 2010. I can't even remember what led me to this class and how I found it. I just know that I have found my "calling". THANK YOU GAIA COLLEGE! I am continually learning this art of organic gardening and find I am pushed over the edge with joy whenever I hear someone new wanting to start a small veggie bed! Lorelie Shoesmith 




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.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
Margaret Mead
