NW regional magazine harvests local food, farms, DIY ethic

GROW NORTHWEST MAGAZINE debuted last month.  It covers the offerings of farmers and food producers, grown or made in the Pacific Northwest area.  Initially, the magazine will generally cover Whatcom, Skagit and San Juan counties and publish six times a year.

“If it’s grown or made in the Northwest, we’ll cover it.  The Northwest has so much to offer in terms of food production, sustainable living and the DIY ethic.  There is real passion here for supporting the local economy and those who grow, make, produce and create,” she said.  “The magazine will be a go-to guide for those people who enjoy these things and live by them.”

In addition to local food and farms, the magazine will publish other features including DIY projects, sustainable living, seasonal cooking and recipes, locavore travel adventures, gardening, crafts, events, and profiles of organizations and artisans – all with a local angle.

Grow Northwest Magazine’s website will feature all of the information included in the print issues, as well as food directories by county and other features.

This is the third publication for Whatcom County residents Becca Schwarz Cole and Brent Cole.  The husband-wife team also publishes WHAT’S UP MAGAZINE, which covers the music scene and just celebrated its 12th anniversary, and the FOOTHILLS GAZETTE, started in 2005 and serving East Whatcom County.  This new, free publication will be sustained by advertising, with subscriptions and donations by readers who wish to do so.
