(You’ll see two posts from me today. This first one is easier to do at 6 a.m.)
One of the efforts I’ve been involved with is serving as science editor (and writer) for MasterGardener Magazine. We started this quarterly publication in 2007 (take a look at it online at it here) – not just for Master Gardeners, but for anyone interested in sustainable gardens and landscapes. Sadly, the publication went to an annual issue last year because of the economic downturn and now may be eliminated altogether.
Yes, this is a Washington state publication so when native plants discussed they are local natives. But the information itself is applicable no matter where you live. We had hoped at one time to offer regional issues, so that the magazine would have a local flavor.
Anyway, the publishers are no longer willing to carry a loss on the magazine. What they really need are advertisers.
Any suggestions out there? Most useful will be ideas that I can do from my computer or phone.
