Growing Green International is the twice yearly magazine published by the Vegan Organic Network, and is free to members (click here to join VON) – it is available in printed or digital form. You can download a recent back issue, GGI 38 (published January 2017, it’s an 8MB pdf), which includes articles on Tolhurst Organic’s 40th anniversary, and also on integrating animal rescue with vegan organics.
Our Summer/Autumn 2017 issue shown opposite (GGI 39) was published in July 2017. The Bradley Nook Farm feature and interview from this issue is freely available online – the farm (highlighted on our cover) has recently switched from beef production to vegan organic farming. Next issue (GGI 40) slightly delayed but should be out early March 2018 – see below.
The magazine reflects a broad range of information and opinions, covering the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of vegan organic growing. We try to feature a mixture of articles that cover practical, technical and ethical issues, as well as hints and tips, letters, photos and illustrations. Most of the articles on our articles page on growing are from this magazine. Growing Green International is now recognised and widely read by those concerned with vegan organic cultivation in many parts of the world.
Click here to see the contents of this latest issue and all previous ones too (some articles are freely available online and those are marked in blue). The complete set of back issues is available online to VON members – if you’re already a member please email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for access to these (the members forum which previously included the back issues is no longer operating).
Our next issue (GGI 40) is due to be published at the start of March 2018. We have a new editor, Tony Martin, and for the first time the magazine will be in full colour. We rely mainly on VON members and supporters to provide the content for the magazine, and if you’re interested in contributing to future issues please contact Tony at email@example.com. In future, magazines will be published twice yearly at the beginning of March and September, and items for consideration need to be sent in at least ten weeks in advance. Where possible and appropriate we’ll try to include in the next issue depending on space, deadlines, and if it is appropriate for that season. We may have room for smaller items of news closer to the publication date.
