What You Will Learn Through Coaching Services

Get Back to Basics

We are passionate about educating the community on how to grow and create nutrient rich food, in their own homes. Bring it back to basics and eliminate all those hidden additives and chemicals by learning how to make your food from scratch.

Live Healthier

Sustainable gardening not only creates a better environment, but it is also better for you. You will spend more time outdoors, have less exposure to harmful chemicals and enjoy the benefits of freshly harvested produce.

Save Money

By growing your own food from scratch, you are not only going to have fresher meals – you will also save money. Your own edible landscape is a cost effective way to introduce the right foods into your home.

Life Changing Skills

You will walk away from our coaching services with a host of skills and tools to change your life for the better. Not only will you use your new skill-set in the garden, you will find yourself applying them to everyday life.

Gaias Organic Gardens Workshops

In a world where the future is uncertain and money is tight for most of us, it helps to prepare ourselves to live self-sustainability as best as we can.

Learning how to grow your own food for minimal cost is now becoming an essential skill that everyone should have. You will learn how to turn scraps that you would normally throw away back into nourishing and tasty food.

You’ll also learn harvesting and seed saving tips. These lessons will also help you to get maximum yields from your vegetable patches.

"I attended the Garden workshop "Growing Food for Free" and absolutely loved it. The passion and energy that Carla brings to the event is very inspiring. Her practical demonstrations make the workshop fun and interactive and I was surprised at how easy it is to grow things from scraps. I would highly recommend this event to anyone interested in growing their own food. I will definitely be attending the other workshops being that I enjoyed this event so much. Thank you Carla for a great event."
" Two weeks ago I attended the Growing Food for Free workshop with Carla. Those two hours were so beneficial with regards to the information provided, top tips shared and the encouragement given. Carla is so passionate about growing her own food, this is refreshing, motivating and infectious. Following the workshop I have been eating nutritious and tasty weeds (who knew?) from the garden, drying some of the last peas for seeds and saving the tops from root vegetables to regrow. Following the workshop Carla visited my garden and shared much wisdom and practical advice. There was no hard sell, just advice and help to prioritise my next tasks to nurture what already exists and prepare the soil ready for the next planting. Thanks Carla for sharing your energy, reassuring me I am on the right track and motivating me to spend enjoyable gardening time productively."
