Mission Statement and Philosophy

Gaia Green Products Ltd. is committed to:
• Building a collaborative style management system
• Creating a knowledgeable human resource team in the field of natural soil management to facilitate organic fertilizer market development
• Providing the highest quality organic fertilizers and natural soil amendments
• Providing our customers with safe non-toxic products while supporting a reduction in the use of synthetic chemicals in our urban and rural environment
The Canadian public is concerned about the use of chemicals in the urban environment and is demanding natural alternatives. This is evidenced by the number of Canadian municipalities (now over 80), with legislation banning the cosmetic use of pesticides. As a result there is a need for environmentally friendly ways of dealing with soil fertility, as well as pest and disease problems. Knowledge about Natural Soil Management is a must for the landscape and gardening professionals of the future. It is not enough to simply replace chemical pesticides with natural alternatives. We must first look to our soil quality and its ability to support life. “Feeding the soil and allowing the soil to feed the plants, as opposed to feeding the plants directly with soluble, salt based nutrients, is the fundamental difference between conventional fertilization and organic soil management practices. Increasing biological activity, organic matter and minerals in the soil is essential for chemical pesticide and fertilizer reduction.” By supporting living systems in the soil, we increase the soil ecosystem and ultimately the plants natural ability to resist disease and pest infestation.
