"Heirloom Gardener offers us the opportunity to reach the rapidly expanding audience of practitioners focused specifically on open-pollinated vegetable, classic old fruit, and farmhouse or other antique flower varieties, along with strictly organic growing strategies," says Hank Will, Ogden’s editorial director and Heirloom Gardener’s editor-in-chief.

Ogden has big plans for the growing publication. The company will use MOTHER EARTH NEWS’ newsstand success to expand Heirloom Gardener’s distribution. Readers will also have access to the publication’s content via the Web, events, and social media channels.

"Heirloom Gardener currently doesn’t have an online presence, which we can address right away," says publisher Bill Uhler.

Through the website, readers of Heirloom Gardener will be able to subscribe to free e-newsletters dedicated to topics such as growing organically, saving seeds, and preserving the harvest. Ogden also plans to cultivate a blogger community and a presence on Facebook, Instagram, and other social media platforms. Heirloom Gardener will take part in the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIRS held across the United States.
