Magazine Review - Mother Earth News

Updated on August 14, 2008

There is a great magazine that I head for every time I go to the library. I frequently check out back issues, the same ones over and over again. Mother Earth News is absolutely a magazine worth subscribing too, and believe me I am asking for a subscription for Christmas.

If you are interested in gardening, alternative or renewable energy, homesteading, and sustainable living this is the magazine for you. Honestly though, the only one of those things I actually do is gardening and I still find a ton of useful information each month. I was telling my dad about an article on beef in Mother Earth News and he said that he used to have a subscription to this magazine when I was a child. So it has been around for a long time and is still going strong.

I currently have the April/May issue at my house and some of the things included are Choosing Renewable Energy, The Careful Art of Listening, Find Your Dream Homestead, Container Cultivation, Utility Vehicle Roundup, Easy Garden Anyone Can Make, and Best Books for Wiser Living. There are departments on gardening, eating in season and crops at a glance. The magazine comes out bimonthly and the one I have has 144 pages.

The Mother Earth News website is also a wonderful site for information as well. There are blogs, recipes and information and it is updated daily. You don't have to have a homestead or want to grow all your own food to benefit from this magazine. There are wonderful ideas for all sorts of areas of life. With the growing movement to living green and respecting Earth and the environment this is a great magazine to help you in these areas.

      Yes, I remember this magazine when it was considered a radical publication. Now it's reached the mainstream, and it still speaks to the hippie in all of us.

      I have been reading this since it was an underground, black and white, homesteading magazine in the 70s! LOL!
