MESSAGE from Publisher Peter Bane
Dear Friends,

After nearly 25 years at the helm of the magazine, I will be turning over management to Senior Editor John Wages on April 1st. Trends in the publishing world have shown that it is time to update the magazine's outreach and some aspects of its presentation. It is our view that this will best be done with fresh thinking and new management; my personal life is moving in other directions and I am happy that John is willing and prepared to step into the path I have been walking.

We want to launch soon a digital version of the magazine, under the new name Permaculture Design Magazine, for e-subscription to supplement the print edition, which will continue, also under the new title but with our familiar format. With digital subscription we would expect to reach a wider readership with greater flexibility, and would be able to publish some stories and items for which there is presently no room in the quarterly. We have indexed 90 of the 95 issues and will soon complete that project with the 2014 issues added. This gives us good purchase on making the back issue content available digitally to subscribers and others over the Web. And our website, so capably administered by Keith Johnson these past 16 years, needs a major overhaul, better navigation, a clearer user interface, and more capacity. We have a professional designer at work right now and could expand that work if additional funding can be found.

To do these things we need money, more than the magazine generates under its present business model. We are asking for your help to raise $15,000 (or more) via a Kickstarter campaign launching today. It is especially important to the success of the campaign that a good surge of donations comes in the first few days to build momentum and show broad support. Numbers of gifts are as important as dollars. Our potential audience is large and you could help us expand it by spreading this message throughout your networks.

Please share this request widely, give as much and as often as you can, and help us keep community journalism vital for another 25 years.

Peter Bane

parents in the beautiful hills of Southern Indiana. Our garden beds lie on old meadow land that has not been touched by plow or tiller for over 30 years. Instead of plowing up the sod using heavy machinery, we created garden beds using no-till methods. We never use synthetic pesticides or fertilizers on our gardens, and follow organic farming methods. We believe that food should be healthy and nutritious not only to the consumers, but also to the larger environment.

NEW!The Apple Grower: A Guide for the Organic Orchardist
by Michael Phillips
2005 Updated, expanded, and revised edition, 256 320pages, many color photos, charts / diagrams.

Even in these health-conscious times, with demand for organically grown foods fast increasing, it's still hard to find a good-tasting, locally grown, organic apple. Faced with an impressive rogue's gallery of potential insect pests--curculio, codling moth, and others--most orchard "experts" will tell you flat out that growing apples organically is impossible.

For decades fruit growers have sprayed their trees with toxic chemicals in an attempt to control a range of insect and fungal pests. Yet it is possible to grow apples responsibly, by applying the intuitive knowledge of our great-grandparents with the fruits of modern scientific research and innovation.

Fortunately, Michael Phillips and growers like him didn't listen. For several years now, Phillips has been "doing the impossible" at Lost Nation Orchard in Northern New Hampshire--growing apples successfully using no artificial pesticides or fertilizers. His secret lies in hard work, creative marketing, and a willingness to observe and learn from nature. The definitive guide to growing apples wisely, naturally, and with gentle impact on the earth.

Since The Apple Grower first appeared in 1998, orchardist Michael Phillips has continued his research with apples, which have been called “organic’s final frontier.” In this new edition of his widely acclaimed work, Phillips delves even deeper into the mysteries of growing good fruit with minimal inputs. Some of the cuttingedge topics he explores include:

* The use of kaolin clay as an effective strategy against curculio and borers, as well as its limitations
* Creating a diverse, healthy orchard ecosystem through understory management of plants, nutrients, and beneficial microorganisms
* How to make a small apple business viable by focusing on heritage and regional varieties, value-added products, and the “community orchard” model

The author’s personal voice and clear-eyed advice have already made The Apple Grower a classic among small-scale growers and home orchardists. In fact, anyone serious about succeeding with apples needs to have this updated edition on their bookshelf.
