The Gaia Institute
The Gaia Institute is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation. Our  work couples ecological engineering and restoration with the integration of human communities in natural systems.  
While much environmental engineering has the worthy aim of minimizing harm, the Gaia Institute explores, through research and development, design and construction, how human activities and waste products can be treated to increase ecological productivity, biodiversity, environmental quality, and economic well being.
The purpose of The Gaia Institute is to test through demonstration the means by which the ecological components of backyards, communities, towns and cities, as well as watersheds and estuaries, can be enhanced through integrated wastes-into-resources technologies.

TRUCK/VAN DONATION: The Gaia Institute is in urgent need of a small truck or van to help facilitate materials for current and future projects. Ideally, a diesel (which could be converted to bio-diesel) vehicle would be best, but anything could suffice. If you are interested in receiving a tax-deductible contribution through donating, please contact us!
