Your Organic Gardening Resource
SOUL was formed in response to the growing need for ecologically responsible land care practices. Our mission is to promote and support organic practices in our communities through education, certification and standardization.
We started by developing an organic standard for urban gardens to give a framework for home gardeners and landscape professionals to follow. We then developed a certification process to give our professional members an opportunity to prove their knowledge in organic gardening methods.
For education, Gaia College offers the extremely popular Organic Master Gardener course, which has now spread to many locations, with more to come! We also educate the public through the many free resources on this website and at various green industry events.
If you would like to get involved with SOUL, you can become a member through this website and come on out to the next meeting in your area. There are many ways to contribute and have fun, too!
