Welcome. We live in challenging times, at the intersection of climate crisis, social upheaval and economic uncertainty. The Gaia Forest project aims to create a refuge: Located in the cool uplands of the mid-north coast of NSW, in a region that has been home for rainforest since the age of Gondwana, Gaia Forest will focus on protecting, restoring and reconnecting remnant rainforest habitat, even as we restore and reconnect ourselves to Mother Earth. Our region is home to Antarctic Beech forest, and many unique species including the endangered Rufous Scrub Bird, Spotted Tailed Quoll, and Greater Glider, and the Vulnerable Glossy Black Cockatoo and Pouched Frog, to name a few. In this spectacular and precious landscape we also aim to create a refuge for people; a retreat space for meditation and yoga, a farm focused on regenerative agriculture, and space for deep ecology and nature reconnection.
