Organic Gardening magazine
Kitchen Garden, Britain’s number one magazine for the serious fruit and vegetable grower has a new stable mate in the form of Organic Gardening. Mortons Media Group Ltd are delighted to announce they have purchased Organic Gardening, the only true organic gardening title on the market. Founded in 1988, and in continuous publication ever since, it brings to 20 titles published by the media company.
Managing Director of Mortons Media Group Ltd Terry Clark commented: ‘We are delighted to have acquired Organic Gardening which has many synergies with Kitchen Garden, a title which has seen massive year-on-year growth in high street sales. We have exciting plans for the title and we are confident we can ride on the back of the huge interest in growing organic food.’
The magazine has been owned and run by run by husband and wife team Gaby Bartai Bevan and Geoffrey Bevan from their home in the Shetlands. Gaby, who has also edited the magazine, will continue in this role under the new ownership.
‘I am looking forward to working with a larger company who will have the time and resource to develop the magazine to its full potential,’ said Gaby.
‘Gardening organically is a satisfying and rewarding activity in its own right, but Organic Gardening places it in the context of the wider environment and today’s urgent need for practices which promote sustainability, encourage biodiversity and develop an eco-friendly approach to nature,’ she added.
