GaiaKids® on the Farm

June 15th, 2012

Echinacea, bees & bamboo! Tractor rides, organic snacks & herb games too! A group of our Gaia Kids had a blast learning about herbs on the farm. Our first-ever GaiaKids Field Day started with snacks, stories and games…plus a few corny plant jokes, while waiting out the morning rain. Then the kids jumped on the tractor to explore the Echinacea purpurea fields, running full-speed into their full-bloom glory. Ric Scalzo, founder of Gaia Herbs, discussed the role of bees on the farm and let the kids sample wildflower honey. Afterwards, they explored the bamboo forest, dark & cool (and a little spooky), that borders Cathey’s Creek and the farm’s River Bottom fields. Lots of muddy sneakers were rinsed off at the end of a laughter-filled morning. We’re looking forward to doing this again for more of our GaiaKids.

Ecologically Harvested is a term that describes all herbs sold by Gaia Herbs that are not Certified Organic. Ecologically Harvested herbs include herbs that are harvested in their natural habitat, (i.e., wild harvested) according to specific guidelines for harvesting these herbs (i.e., away from roads and industry, as well as guidelines to avoid overharvesting). Our term, Ecologically Harvested, also includes herbs that are grown in managed woodland areas, fields designated for specific herbs, and herbs that are grown by indigenous growers, such as Kava Kava. All Ecologically Harvested herbs pass pesticide and heavy metal testing as well as microbial testing, prior to release.
