It was great to hear about dowsing, paramagnetism, biological transmutation, and plant consciousness, which are barely talked of and generally unaccepted by the mainstream. It is truly miraculous how the soil food web functions in symbiosis with plants. I find it endlessly fascinating, and now realize how much respect the soil deserves. So thank-you! This has been a very valuable learning experience! Ian 


We are thrilled to announce that Gaia College won the prestigious 2014 B.C. Real Estate Foundation Private Sector Land Award for our work in teaching sustainable land care! It is a great honor to find ourselves in the distinguished company of so many amazing people, all focused on sustainable and environmentally sound land use. Here is a short video about us, in support of our nomination:

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.

"At the deepest level of ecological... is an understanding of being imbedded in a larger whole, a cosmic whole, of belonging to the universe."
Fritjof Capra
