Gaia Creations is owned and operated by Brian & Stephanie Ladwig-Cooper. Our small family business began in 2000 and over 15 years later we remain committed to our ecological design and implementation methods.
We began this business because of the need for ecologically minded land care services in the community. When we started Gaia Creations there was no landscape company in the Chico area that was chemical-free and ecologically sound. Thankfully there are more people practicing these methods today.
Stephanie & Brian also co-founded the Chico Permaculture Guild in 2009 as well as the local nonprofit, Earthshed Solutions, in 2015. As part of their Fair Share, Stephanie & Brian volunteer their time on the board of directors of Earthshed Solutions and on various committees to help promote regenerative living in our community.

"...if you're a scientist, you could liken it [permaculture] to a miraculous wardrobe in which you can hang garments of any science or any art and find they're always harmonious with, and in relation to, that which is already hanging there. It's a framework that never ceases to move, but that will accept information from anywhere." -Bill Mollison
