Changing the world, one backyard at a time.
Gaia's Organic Gardens in the Community
At Gaia’s Organic Gardens we believe nothing can bring a community together like food and vegetable gardens. If you have an idea or know of a project that you believe will benefit your community and its members, we may be able to offer support or discounts to get it set up and keep it running and we love being involved.
Red Cross Australia, Lady Lawley Cottage Cottesloe:
Gaia’s Organic Gardens had the pleasure of donating a beautiful sensory garden to the Kids and Families at the Lady Lawley Cottage. This space was transformed from somewhat unfunctional into a beautiful sensory walk and edible garden. Lined with pungent herbs, with beautiful textures, It provides them with the incredible connectedness with Nature through touching, smelling and tasting the garden as they look and enjoy the space. With wheel chair friendly access this space is changing the lives of those in need. The Lady Lawley Cottage is also a regular drop off for our Freshly Picked Donations!

Carla Weir is a lifelong nurturer of gardens, healer of spirits, and seeker of connection.
Born in Broome, Carla inherited her enthusiasm and skills for permaculture from her mother, and through the souls of earth women before her. Determined to heal the earth of humanity’s toxic habits, Carla established Gaia’s Organic Gardens, where she mentors and empowers others to connect with their gardens, grow their own food, and embrace sustainable living practices.
Through Gaia, Carla facilitates popular workshops on topics as varied as fermented foods, edible weeds, natural beauty, and seed saving. She provides ‘garden doctor’ packages, kids programs, and a range of coaching services. Her award-winning blog is inspirational and informative. Keeping plants and people thriving is the driving force behind everything she does.
In addition, a portion of all funds collected by Gaia’s Organic Gardens is funnelled back into local community programs, and excess produce is distributed to those in need.
Carla has also been interviewed on radio several times and is currently filming something very exciting… and secret! In fact, you could say growing something new is Carla’s forte.
She has a swagful of qualifications from horticulture, to business, to marketing, and practices Reiki, meditation, and a range of other healing work. When not making the outside world a better place, she is looking after an energetic toddler and fantastic husband and thinking up new ways to build connections with family, community, and beyond.
Gaia’s Organic Gardens has helped hundreds of homes to grow their own vegetables in their own backyards.
Being fully certified in horticulture and conservation means you can trust that your garden is in good hands.
