Meet Team Gaia
The Dream Green Team
Garden Doctor – Primary Director / Operator
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.
Garden Doctor – Guardian of the Gardens
Hi , I’m Karen and I am just in love with nature. It is my happy place. The more nature I can plant in this world the better off we all are and the happier I am. Especially when it is edible and organically created, planted and reared.
I love the work I do creating sustainable, environment and human friendly edible gardens in peoples home. I love seeing how much joy and peace and health it brings to their lives and that of their children’s. (And who knows eventually children’s, children)
I love coming back to peoples homes to do our maintenance rounds and seeing their gardens flourish with edible flowers and fresh produce. Bees and ladybirds doing their thing playing out their important roles.
I am passionate about we are what we eat and roll modelling this to our children. connecting people and children with the origin of their food and how it is grown is vital in the good health of the produce.
Team Gaia Apprentice
My name is Codie and I am the trainee at Gaia’s Organic Gardens. I’m super passionate about health and wellness in all aspects of life; from physical to mental, emotional and spiritual.
I have qualifications in fitness and am currently studying my Certificate III in Horticulture.
I love working with Carla and the team teaching the community about sustainable living and how we can all reduce our impact on the environment.
Every garden has the potential to be a place of therapy and bring wellness into our lives. I absolutely love having the opportunity to make this possible for people every day.
By getting your hands dirty and growing your own fresh organic produce, you will not only feel the benefits of better health, you will be doing your part for our beautiful Gaia!
I am really passionate about nature and the environment in general and teaching others how to care for it.
I love many things such as diving, walking on the beach, doing yoga, but on the top of all I love food, and to get the healthier and tastier, the best way is to grow your own, so gardening is the key!
I am also passionate about bees and the idea of producing as much as I can in my backyard 😉
I am so happy and enthusiastic about sharing how to live a greener life,
this is why I am so glad I met Carla and having this amazing opportunity to be part of Gaia’s Organic Garden team as I can enjoy being outside, change the world, help the environment and helping people to become self sufficient and independent to produce their own healthy, tasty, harmless and enjoyable food by spraying the earth with delicious organic fruits, veggies and flowers…
Hope to meet you all soon!
Throughout my life I have always made gardens wherever I lived and have always been drawn to the healing powers of nature. I have qualifications in naturopathy, herbal medicine, aromatherapy, massage, reflexology and reiki. I am a mother and I use this knowledge in everyday life.
When my son went off to school I wondered what I career path I should start now and my husband said just do what makes you happy! So I began my studies in Horticulture, Landscaping and Conservation and completed my Certificate IV in Conservation and Land Management.
I began volunteering with Friends groups (of Iluka, Ocean Reef, Sorrento & Marmion Marine Park) and I soon began working for Coastcare. I fell in love with caring for our environment and the amazing flora we have in Western Australia. I was also volunteering with The Wildflower Society of WA, which led me to find work making native gardens in peoples homes. Through this work, I found I loved helping people create spaces they could relax and connect with nature.
When I was offered a place within the team with Gaia’s Organic Gardens I was thrilled to have the opportunity to create vegie gardens for people to be able to grown their own produce that they can bring to their plate and nourish their bodies! I feel I have come full circle with my passion for health and bringing the healing powers of nature to people’s homes.
My name is Cloud, I love working with Carla and the team because it is a job that aligns with my values.
Knowing that she can provide anyone who is willing the tools to live a sustainable lifestyle that helps the environment and the themselves is something I truly encourage.
I support the administration side of things so you may be chatting with me soon!
