The Gaia Farm Produce Program

The Gaia Farm Produce Program delivers fresh organic produce to Bread of Life Center, Gaia Herbs’ local community kitchen and food bank. In doing this, we help bring healthy and nutritious fruits and vegetables to those in need.

Community Produce Benefits – By the Numbers
$14,000…The approximate value of organic produce donated in 2010
5,816…The pounds of organic produce grown for our community kitchen in 2010
180…The number of people served by Bread of Life on an average day
50…The approximate number of produce deliveries made by Gaia Herbs to Bread of Life in an average year
7…The number of months the Produce Program operates- from May through November
2…Times each week produce is delivered from Gaia Farm in season
0…Number of miles Bread of Life must travel to get their produce. We deliver!

This program’s effect goes beyond improving our food quality compared to the standard American diet. It delivers an environmental, social, and economic impact.

All of Gaia Farm’s produce, from arugula to zucchini, is grown organically and then travels feet (not miles) to reach Bread of Life’s kitchen.

Food is one of the most basic needs of sustaining life. By providing healthy food resources to our community kitchen, we help strengthen the social fabric of our closeknit community.

Community kitchens are being hit hard by the recession, when they are needed the most. Donations of organic food help our community kitchen in serving people in economic distress.

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.
