Grow It

Published on the first Friday of each month by Kelsey Publishing Group, Cudham, Kent. There's no other magazine quite like this one - it's aimed at those who want to learn how to grow their own produce.

ND comment - The quality of the photography in this magazine is amazing, and the approach is completely hands-on. The Grow-It website is at www.growitmag.com

Issue 4 contains an interesting article about the way EU regulations are threatening the security of our food supply. The vast majority of commercially produced food relies on a very small number of varieties - whether it be potatoes, fruit, or cereal crops. It is now a criminal offence to sell varieties which maintain bilogical diversity (those types not on the official "EU list", registration for which is a time consuming and expensive process). See the full article for details.
