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 pdf of a recent back issue, GGI 40 (Winter/Spring 2018), which includes an interview with Wild Earth Farm & Sanctuary in the USA, and a feature on Hodmedod’s, Britain’s pulse and grain pioneers.

Our Autumn/Winter 2019 issue shown opposite (GGI 43) was published in October 2019.

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 to ask for access to these (the members forum which previously included the back issues is no longer operating).

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 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.
