A Living Laboratory

Gaia Herbs Farm is a living laboratory for the latest organic planting and cultivation methods. Each year we produce over three million individual plants, representing 20-40 species of herbs. The moment you step onto the farm, Hawthorn and Ginkgo trees—symbolizing the heart and mind of Gaia Herbs—greet you with their beauty and wisdom. We grow fields of flowering Echinacea, fragrant Lemon Balm, and brilliant California Poppy, all nourished by the clear mountain waters flowing through the valley. We nurture and observe each plant, allowing it to flourish in the sun until the right moment to harvest. By mirroring the growing conditions of Nature, we ensure the purity, potency, and integrity of each plant.


    Over 300 Ginkgo trees greet visitors as they enter the farm.


    A grove of Hawthorn trees produces a bountiful harvest each spring.


    A staff and customer favorite, many fields of Echinacea are grown annually.

Katherine Renner

The opportunity to be the Farm Operations Manager at Gaia Herbs is the culmination of Kate’s life journey thus far, as her earliest memories are of playing in the dirt in a home garden. Intrigue of living things led her to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Sciences. Kate served as a Peace Corps Volunteer for three years in El Salvador and emerged with a conscience towards the global impact of conventional farming systems, health and nutrition, and cultural sensitivity. Bringing these learnings home, Kate worked as an apprentice on an organic farm and connected the dots from soil health to nutrition, leading her to pursue a Master’s Degree in Nutrition Sciences with a focus on Sustainable Agriculture. At Gaia, Kate combines all facets, from migrant farmworker health and awareness, organic and regenerative agriculture practices, local community relations, and working with fellow Gaians to provide the freshest, purest, quality herbs for the natural wellness of our bodies and world.
