A recent visit to an organic herb farm taught people a lot. The early work of the organization supported children who were orphaned because of aids. Gaia also aims to provide an education to children in China who are living in poverty. The Gaia cares benefit discussed health and how to change your life to a more healthy one.
- Gaia is the only herbal company that can trace their goods from seed to end product. Most of their herbs are grown right in Brevard and that their area of Transylvania County is one of the most bio-diverse sites in the country.
- Their Ginkgo Trees (an herb used for memory and cognition) are intentionally grown with many supporting trunks to give proliferation to their abundant leaves.
- Hawthorne has cardio health properties, and the trees on site are intentionally planted near the Ginkgo for a heart/mind balance.
“As part of their wellness benefits, Gaia employees are served two meals per week, and supplied vegetables from their company CSA.”
