The Gathering Place puts people and the environment before profit.
We import the highest quality certified organic and ethically crafted products from South Africa and India, the Gathering Place gives back 13% of its profits to improve the lives of children in need.
To ensure exceptional quality, we visit the farms and get to know the farmers personally. These direct relationships form the heart of our business: “From Farmer to Family."
Our tea is simply among the best you will ever taste. Organically grown, hand harvested, fresh and packaged with love, our superior quality teas will delight your taste buds and enhance your health.
Antarctic Sea Salt is the purest sea salt in the world! It is sun and wind dried and hand harvested.
Gathering Place certified organic spices come direct from family farms in India. These fairly traded spices are the most recent harvest, ensuring freshness and exceptional flavour.
Our practices include shipping by sea, not air; employing local designers and printers and reusing boxes for shipping. All our products are hand-packed by happy local people. We recycle or reuse as much of our business waste as possible and run our delivery vehicle on bio diesel.
