Free Gardening Magazine

I had an email on Sunday from Paul Peacock of City Cottage. I don't usually write a post as a result of an email asking for publicity but this was different. It wasn't from someone asking me to mention a product that they wre trying to sell but for something that was freely available on the Internet and so after having a look at what they were offering I decided that I would share the information with you.

City Cottage publish a freely available online magazine which focuses on self sufficiency. The information that was sent to me was to publicise the second edition of their magazine which can be viewed online or downlaoded to view on a tablet device. You can access it here.

Foscussing on self sufficiently the topics covered in the magazine are more diverse than those of purely gardening magzines. I haven't yet read the magazine but first impressions are that it looks to be a very professionally put together publication. See what you thinks.

  3. It makes a change to get something for nothing. I've stopped buying gardening magazines as I can't justify spending the money on them when most of the articles are repeated each year. I shall take a look at this when I have a little more time.

  7. Thanks for sharing this Sue.

    There's a 'donate' button on the first page and I think it is worth a quid or two via PayPal, I'd like to see this succeed.
