Thursday, 10th March 2016

We have long dreamed of a Permaculture magazine especially for North America. Launched this week, new editors Hannah Apricot Eckberg and Cassie Langstraat, describe how the project came to fruition.

It's official! Permaculture Magazine North America has landed!

We will be publishing a quarterly magazine just like our mother mag, and will be VERY similar to her, just honing in more on North American content!

Our website is up, and you can pre-subscribe to our first issue coming out June 1st! Each of our subscribers will get access to ALL of the existing Permaculture magazine digital issues FOR FREE! That's 87 issues. You. Are. Welcome. Check us out!

Can't wait to keep building this movement and share what each of you are doing with the world!

Honored. Elated. Overwhelmed. Responsible. Excited. Appreciative. These are just a few of the emotions we are juggling as we venture down this path to publishing the first offshoot of Permaculture magazine – the new Permaculture magazine, North America.

Permaculture has long been a big influence in both our lives and we feel it is now our duty and mission to share the inspiration that it provided us, to as many people as possible. While visiting England for the International Permaculture Convergence, Tim Harland asked if we would be interested in helping produce the magazine with a North American flair. To be honest, we were both in a state of disbelief.

Every conversation we had about it left us both filled with excitement, and hearts beating a million miles a minute. Early on, we knew it was meant to be. I don’t think that state of being has quite left us yet either. It has been an absolute adventure already: organizing the nitty gritty logistics; soliciting articles for our first issue; approaching advertisers; building our website; and most of all, mustering up the courage necessary to undertake such a worthy, yet massive, endeavor.

We are so glad to be working along side each other, and with guidance from Maddy, Tim, and the amazing team they have at Permaculture magazine out of England. Together, and with the help of many others, we will produce a publication with the same high standards, appealing aesthetic, and practical information that their magazine has provided for the last 24 years.

Our content of course, will be focused on North American permaculture, in an attempt to share as much information as possible through the two magazine versions and websites.

However, we intend to be captivating and relevant across the globe, just as permaculture has been for a quarter century. We invite everyone to join us on this incredibly wild ride. You are all a part of this growing family as we are all here to help support the Permaculture Movement!

Permaculture Magazine, North America will be in stores in North America, and available for digital subscriptions internationally, June 1st. However, you can get to know us right now at our brand new website –
