WHAT’S NEW at The Dirt on Organic Gardening Magazine!

Because of other commitments, we’re moving the magazine to a quarterly format instead of the monthly format we’ve had in place for the past four years. The January issue will kick this off with a special review of some of our favorite people in the world of organic gardening and sustainability!
