Why GAIA? 
Hint: Covid-19, Stress, Work Overload, etc.  
With the current pandemic, anxiety and mental health issues have been at an all time high. We are now spending more time at home than ever before. But it's not just that. In recent years, we have been silo-ed by technology and stress, leaving us less inclined to explore nature. Connecting with nature can improve physical and mental health, while also creating a healthier social life. This is alarming because not exploring and connecting with nature brings many negative impacts on our physical, mental, and social life. One easy to solution to this is plants but many of us don't know how to take care of them. GAIA is here to create a connected relationship between you and your plants.

The Vision: To Build A Community 
We want to build an open and inviting community full of all of the GAIA buyers, plant enthusiasts to share knowledge and experiences with plants. This community will hopefully grow like a weed (see what we did there?!) and serve as a way for people to share information and knowledge so that everyone can grown their own plants at home. We also envision bringing this same philosophy applied to GAIA to other aspects of plant science; such as: soil acidity, temperature, and sunlight.
Other GAIA Ideas
During this two year journey, we have been fortunate enough to work with incredible local organizations. Together, with you and our partners, we can turn our vision into reality and help everyone grow plants and better connect with nature.
