Rodales Organic Life

I have found a great magazine Rodales Organic Life.  I was given the opportunity to review the Premier Issue of the magazine. I am excited to say I just ordered my two year subscription.

I am a avid electronic reader - in fact I read about 90% online or on my tablet. But there are a few things that I like to hold and read Organic Life is one of those magazines.

It is a 6 issue a year magazine - I like that - it gives me two months to totally go through the magazine - check it out by giving each article my 100% attention. I also plan to save the publications and use them as reference tools. 

The best way I can describe Organic Life is that it reminds me of a organic version of National Geographic magazine. Quality articles with superb photos - extremely informative. Well worth the $24 for a two year subscription!


In the premier issue there are excellent articles:
  • FLOWER POWER ~ An in-depth look at the sustainable flower movement with beautiful spring bouquets raised in ways that support healthy ecosystems.
  • WALKABOUT ~ An expansive feature that explores the art, history, and science of walking, including a list of 10 of the greatest walks, a smart walker's gear guide, and a diagram to help you find the best shoes for your walk.
  • SALMON BAY ~ A first-person account of the yearly journey to catch wild sockeye salmon in Bristol Bay, Alaska, also featuring a buyer's guide to sustainable salmon; inspiring, delicious salmon recipes for Spring; and six easy sauces perfect for salmon.
  • LET THERE BE LIGHT ~ A visual collection of dwelling places around the world, showing readers how to bring more natural light into their living space.
  • MIXED GREEN ~ A comprehensive guide to the today's best homegrown lettuces, with accompanying photographs, strategies for planting and growing, and recipe recommendations.
I especially enjoyed the Salmon Bay article and recipes. We love salmon and we are always looking at new and exciting ways to cook salmon.

If you are organic or looking for ways to bring more organic living into your life Organic Life magazine is a excellent choice.

  16. Rodales has been around forever and the HQ is not too far from me. It's a very well-respected publisher and was way before its time with organic and sustainable gardening and agriculture.
