Welcome Home

I am Julie Gaia. 2022 is the year of the travelling Gaia Hive. We are expanding! Throughout the seasons I strive to live by example and enjoy helping clients & students connect with their wild roots and innate nature.

I am a mother, seed saver, dancer, star seed, animist, beekeeper, and caregiver of an acre of permaculture style gardens. My roots are Germanic and Scandinavian. Each year I travel and enjoy connecting with plant allies throughout Ontario. Many seasons I have spent travelling and working with plants medicines. Six months on the big island of Hawaii, several winters in Central America, and time in Germanic lands have helped ignite my passion for plants and practicing ancestral ways.

I'm passionate about speaking my truth, protecting the waters around and within us, weaving community together, wild basket weaving, plant spirit healing, caring for the land, herbalism, and plant spirit mentorships. All classes I offer are hands-on and heart-based.

I send gratitude and thanks to my spiritual family for their unconditional love and support. My heart overflows with respect for my ancestors & the ancestors of this land. Whenever I need clarity & strength in my life I take some time to be still and rest in the forest. Here is a song I wrote fireside during the winter of 2019 to honour the ancestors from the past and for the future generations. This acknowledges the ancestors of this land and my own. It is for the furred, winged, two-legged, finned, insects, unseen, mountain, stone and tree people. Feel free to sing this song and make up your tune or rhythm.


As we gather on this land

Grounding down

Honing in

I open my hands (2x)


This is a safe space

This a sacred place


May all I do honour you

May all I do honour you
