About Our Indian Farming Cooperative

Nearly our entire line of spices comes from one amazing co-operative venture made up of 3000 farmers in Karnataka State of India. Food is produced organically, with great integrity in closed loop, permaculture systems, referred to as food forests. From harvesting rainwater to caretaking endangered plants to the creation of biogas for fueling their kitchens, these farmers are living examples of sustainable agriculture. This co-operative is making a huge difference in the lives of the farmers of this area and we feel enormously grateful to be able to support this grassroots initiative.

India Reviving Their Tradition of Sustainable Farming

Our first trip to India was 12 years ago and our hearts were immediately engaged by the people, the spirituality, the culture, and the food. We were fortunate to discover a wonderful organic cooperative in Karnataka State which grows food in incredible and sustainable multi-tiered food forests. Upon visiting the farms, we quickly knew these were people and a project we wanted to support.
Since first partnering with this cooperative, we have learned much more about the history of agriculture in the region. Prior to the advent of modern agriculture and its insistence on massive pesticide use, India was known for its sustainable, small-scale, subsistence farms; they were the mainstay of every Indian community. For a period of time, Monsanto tried to insert itself but the crops failed and the people rebelled. Now the organic food movement is once again spreading a healing balm across the country, bettering farmers’ lives and increasing household incomes.

Planet Over Profit

1% of Every Sale of Organic Whole Coriander Seed Goes to Nurturing the Environment

While some brands only "give back" from their profits (i.e. money earned after expenses and owners' incomes), we at Gathering Place donate one percent of all our sales to important, grassroots initiatives that directly improve the lives of the people who farm these spices, herbs, and tea.
