Gaia in Greek mythology was the mother of all. We used it to call to the Earth. So in the present, when we see the name Gaia, we think of our mother Earth–She,who provides our life needs. Which is exactly what Gaia, the store and workshop, offers to us, right here in San Jose del Cabo. Gaia: Life Awareness in Baja…
Gaia ~ Store and Workshop ~ is a Baja land experience; one that awakens us to a real-earth consciousness. It is a food store which makes available healthy and organic sustainable foods that are not genetically modified and are created without chemicals or additives. This is clean and living food like nuts, seeds, grains, spices, alternative flours, vinegars, oils, alternative pastas, breads, crackers, fresh goat milk, yogurt, and cheese, soy yogurt, agave syrup, honey, stevia, turbinado sugar, seed crackers, sprouted cereals, seed and nut milks, fresh juices, fresh vegetables in season, a natural personal care line, and so forth. They are the things that are really needed to sustain and nurture.
Located at the Montessori school, Educarte, in San Jose del Cabo, this space hosts community workshops in the afternoons and evening, that focus on sustainability and permaculture, healthy, vegan and raw nutrition, and holistic wellness.
“I realized how passionate I was to be able to share shifts in nutrition, permaculture and sustainability awareness. Helpful skills so that we can all be healthy and autonomous in our care for the planet, lives, food choices,” says Kim Clapham, the owner.
