THE SECRET IS OUT FOLKY FOLKS! Here is what I left permies.com for, I have been SOOOO anxious/excited to share it with all of you!

Permaculture Magazine, North America Has Launched



A little backstory, from our Our Story Page.

For the past 23 years our mother magazine, Permaculture, Britain, has been a bestselling green magazine in Britain and around the world. Maddy and Tim Harland co-founded it in 1992 and have since then built it into an incredibly influential reserve of practical permaculture information.

With the ever-growing interest in sustainable living, we all knew it was time to expand the network of this permaculture inspiration to North America “officially”. Maddy and Tim have been expanding their efforts worldwide for quite some time now, but didn’t have anyone actually on the ground here to move things forward. That’s where Permaculture, North America comes in! We are so excited to start the first off-shoot of Permaculture, Britain, and will be publishing the first issue of Permaculture, North America in the spring of 2016!

We will be launching a version of the magazine that will focus on issues relating specifically to the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Following in the steps of Permaculture, Britain the new version will offer high-quality educational articles, reader solutions, examples of permaculture successes, connections to local workshops, and advertisements from regional businesses that operate from a triple-bottom line.

We like to think of Permaculture, North America working as a mycelial network does. Mycelium provides a way for fungi to connect and communicate with each other, offering support, even when they are very far apart. PMNA will be precisely that. It will be a networking force that connects people and communities across the continent to enable the greater Permaculture Movement to thrive and flourish.



SO, We will be publishing a quarterly magazine just like our mother mag, and will be VERY similar to her, just honing in more on North American content! Our website is up, and you can pre-subscribe to our first issue coming out June 1st!

Oh, what was that? You want us to sweeten the pot a bit? Well don't mind if I do. Each of our subscribers will get access to ALL of the UK Permaculture Magazine digital issues FOR FREE! That's 87 issues people. You. Are. Welcome. wink emoticon So yeah, check us out! Can't wait to keep building this movement and share what each of you are doing with the world!


You Can Subscribe Here!





OH! Also, the first 50 subscribers get a free digital download of Permaculture For the Rest of Us by Jennie Blackmore! Check out our shiny new website created by yours truly to read articles, watch videos, and of course, subscribe your pants off!


We've got online articles up on the website already, here are some of them:

And a few more:

Great news.

The font on the web site is hard to read on Windows in Chrome. Looks like someone took a picture and scaled it down losing some detail.

I am getting a fatal error on the new society offer. I will just try later, but thought I would let you know in case there is a glitch.

I went to subscribe but Firefox told me that it is not a secured website (and no https in the url) so I didn't feel safe to enter my info. Can you make it a secure site? I would love to subscribe! And congratulations, it looks FANTASTIC! Lucky us that you did this.

I'm excited to see this come together! I subscribed ~45 minutes ago and immediately received payment confirmation from PayPal but so far no email from PMNA. Is the email with instructions for accessing back issues of Permaculture UK and confirmation of whether I was one of the first 50 subscribers sent out automatically, or is that an offline process that takes more time?

Thanks,

Cory

It's been a few hours since I subscribed. I received a payment confirmation email from PayPal immediately, but haven't received any other email regarding the subscription. Maybe it needs to be done manually and will happen later on today.

Get in there everyone if you are interested in Jenni's book. I live close to her in Nova Scotia, Canada, and just bought a copy from her at a local event. It is a good book to get started with putting some permaculture into practice. A personal, interesting read. Of course, you may want to get a print copy later even if you get this freebie download!

excited to see the 'return of Cassie', and I'm in! (though not without tech difficulties. for my ebook, registered w/newsociety but their download link isn't working - sent a note, we'll see... also need to WAIT for my access to 87 back issues, "will be active within 24-48 hours..." grrr, I'm sooooo impatient! guess I need to go to WORK this morning instead of getting lost in reading.)
looking forward to learning! (and still have land to share if someone is looking for a place in northeastern PA - see https://www.smugmug.com/gallery/n-Cs2d6m/ )

GAH! Subscribed. I've been a long time reader of the UK version and I guess I just assumed it was a UK thing and would not have a US version. Sweet!

Will there be a digital only subscription option (or did I miss it)? I have my Permaculture UK subscription as digital only. I don't like the waste of having a print copy of magazines.

For some reason none of the "clickable links" through Permies is working for me since the redesign. Anyone the url for the subscription instead of the link? Thanks

How will it be different from Permaculture Design (formerly Permaculture Activist)?

Hi Mike.. I think this is a good question to answer here. On the site, she mentions an electronic-only subscription will be available in June after the first print edition goes out.

Hi Anne,

I'm not sure why it is saying it isn't secure. Where did you get that message? Just when you went to the homepage?

Regarding not having http in the url, try this: http://permaculturemag.org/

It should have been sent out automatically. Sometimes it takes a bit. Have you still not received it? I see your order.

Me too! Will the North American version have shared content with the UK one or be 'different enough' that we should subscribe to it as well? Because there's no such thing as too much Permaculture goodness to read..

Hi Donna,

Have you still not received the email? I don't see an order with your name on it. You can email me at cassie AT permaculturemag DOT org if it still hasn't came.

Hi Cassie,
For a website to be secure according to my (very limited!) knowledge it has to say https:// note the "s" which is missing from your link that you gave me there. So it is possible for any web-savvy person to get the info that anyone enters on that page. I went ahead and took my chances anyway as paypal is secure and I just hope that my name and address and email, phone etc don't get picked up by anyone from the sign up page and sold or misused. You might want to ask your web expert about this.

Hi BeeDee,

This magazine will have entirely different articles. So yes, it will be different enough. Occasionally we might feature a few of their articles in our magazine, but that will only be on occasion.

It will just have the same sections and be almost identical aesthetically.
