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 Winter/Spring 2018 issue shown opposite (GGI 40) was published in March 2018, and includes an interview with Heather Patrick and Joe Kilcoyne, founders of Wild Earth Farm & Sanctuary in the USA. Plus news from Plants For A Future in the UK.
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 email@example.com to ask for access to these (the members forum which previously included the back issues is no longer operating).
Our next issue (GGI 41) is due to be published at the start of September 2018 and we would love to hear from you.
We want to know, what do you want from the magazine? What kind of articles, overviews, or in-depth pieces? What subjects? Have you spotted some news you think we should include? Are you organising an event? Would you like to run a stall for us? Would you like to help in another way such as proofreading, or advertising our events or magazine? Could you write an article for inclusion in our next issue? Don’t worry if you’ve never written anything before, we’ll be glad to help. Contact Tony at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you on how best we can enable your creative or other talents but first please read the submission guide below.
