Our Mission

Dirty Gaia is an environmental organization that works to promote earth stewardship through programs that inform, build skills and inspire communities in the Hudson Valley.

Our Philosophy: When we learn to plant gardens that feed the earth, attract pollinators to feed the gardens, and work collaboratively with creatures great and small to produce fruits, trees, flowers and vegetables that feed our souls and soil, we’ll be a step closer to becoming responsible and resilient stewards of the world entrusted to us. Mother Earth, Gaia, has designed miraculous, interdependent and resilient ecosystems that work in concert for the benefit of all. We’ve co-evolved with these systems but forgotten our place, too often interrupting, even obliterating them. The loss is ours. 

Dirty Gaia’s goal is to reconcile our relationship with the natural world, to understand our environment with a place-based approach, and to thrive within it by harnessing Gaia’s wisdom and restoring her vitality while ensuring our own. Through Backyard to Table, Dirty Gaia Presents, Pollinate Now! and our partnership with the Morton Seed Library, Dirty Gaia offers a variety of educational opportunities to inspire growing with awe and respect. Let’s roll up our sleeves and get into the dirt!

Resilient communities, inspired by nature, with the skills to thrive.
