Carla Weir is a lifelong nurturer of gardens, healer of spirits, and seeker of connection.
Born in Broome, Carla inherited her enthusiasm and skills for permaculture from her mother, and through the souls of earth women before her. Determined to heal the earth of humanity’s toxic habits, Carla established the local business Gaia’s Organic Gardens, where she mentors and empowers others to connect with their gardens, grow their own food, and embrace sustainable living practices.
Through Gaia, Carla facilitates popular workshops on topics as varied as fermented foods, edible weeds, natural beauty, and seed saving. She provides ‘garden doctor’ packages, kids programs, and a range of coaching services. Keeping plants and people thriving is the driving force behind everything she does.
In addition, a portion of all funds collected by Gaia’s Organic Gardens is funnelled back into local community programs, and excess produce is distributed to those in need.
Carla has also been interviewed on radio several times and is currently filming something very exciting… and secret! In fact, you could say growing something new is Carla’s forte.
She has a swagful of qualifications from horticulture, to business, to marketing, and practices reiki, meditation, and a range of other healing work. When not making the outside world a better place, she is loving up an energetic toddler and fantastic husband and thinking up new ways to build connections with family, community, and gardens beyond.
