So you have a magazine about food in the missoula area. 

Partly about restaurants and partly about food you cook yourself. 

And you want to talk about permaculture a bit. 

What did you have in mind?

sorry I didn't see this thread before....
edibleMISSOULA is part of the Edible Communities family of magazines - over 60 strong in North America. Edible publications are currently *the* most read food magazine in the marketplace.

Each publication is local owned and operated (a franchise of sorts) but each publisher has complete control over local editorial and advertising content.

The mission is to give a face and the story to the local foods movement, from farms to chefs and backyard gardeners to food artisans. My personal mission is to also provide the "how to" piece.

I was introduce to permaculture about 2 years ago and said out loud - "OMG" this make SO much sense, why are we not seeing more of this. Since then I have immersed myself with reading books like Gaia's Garden, others about cobb, Elliott Coleman etc. and observing what is going on around the world with permies. I have been longing to have a permaculture presence in this community - which seems so ripe - but the real voice has been the missing piece. My intent has been to start a permaculture feature in every issue (quarterly) but I haven't felt like *the* voice has been available, thus far, in Missoula. Thanks Paul for coming back and providing that.

edibleMISSOULA is at a crossroads of survival - although there is much verbal support, there is little financial support and most don't realize what it takes to make a publication of this caliber to survive. Our printing costs alone, using recycled, uncoated paper is not inexpensive - most glossies go the low road (printing-wise) and they also have articles promoting their advertisers, which we do not do. Advertising does not and will not dictate editorial.

We need more community support (financial and beyond) and are in the midst of developing a few strategies to get there.

To submit or pitch stories, just email me at editor@ediblemissoula.com

More of a ramble than I had anticipated - so much more to say.........


edibleMISSOULA, a quarterly publication, endeavors to create and grow community through our connection to local foods.

How can one help in the "beyond" realm.  As a recovering student, I don't have much financial support to offer, but I have some other skills.  Is there an online component to Edible Missoula?

There is an online component and I would love to have more going on there. We just upgraded to Joomla 1.5 and I am having trouble grasping all that needs to happen to update on the backend.

There are other ways to be involved too, based on your interest and skills.
