For a long time GAIA has worked in conjunction with
CANTV. We have place an article on their website every week on a variety
of different topics all broadly orientated around the project "Our
Daily Plant" hence including articles on everything from plant
properties to recycling.
To find these articles go to the cantv website at http://www.cantv.net/ and on the option
bar on the left hand side, select the education service. Usually on a
Wednesday or Thursday on this page, you will find a link to an article
written by us. Why not save this page in your "favorites" file so you
can go straight to it every week?!

and was broadcast once a week on the station "Radio 1300 AM". Being in
our earlier days, this program was not solely orientated around the
project "Our Daily Plant" which was only in the making at that time -

health (including ideas such as Biodance, Musical
- The interaction of Health and
Art (effects of different chemicals in art)

project "Our Daily Plant", if you look at the project page for Our
