Note to readers: Grow Northwest on hiatus

May 27th, 2020 | Category: Features

We miss you.  We hope your farms, gardens, yards, and spaces are growing beautifully and you are enjoying all the season brings, especially during these challenging times.

Following the loss of our April and May issues (May was to be our 10th anniversary special issue), we’ve come to the difficult decision that Grow Northwest will continue to be on hiatus. Put simply, there are no resources to resume at this time. We are a family-owned, independent publication. Faced with massive advertising revenue loss and projected summer/fall losses and cancellations, it’s just not to be for now. We’re hopeful we can resume later this year, and will keep you posted as things move along. 

The seasonal lists for u-picks and others will continue to be featured on our website, as well as other information, and we will continue to share through our Facebook page and website. It has been inspiring, helpful, and heartwarming to see the work and support by those in all parts of the community. If you have something you’d like to share with us, please do.

For those who have sent inquiries and questions via email about growing, gardening, local farms, finding resources and local connections, etc. please know I am keeping up with the emails as best I can. There are a ton of emails these past couple months, so if you haven’t received a response yet, please know it’s coming. It’s beautiful to see an increasing appreciation of the little things, doing more for yourself, being resilient and adaptable, learning how to grow, and of course supporting your neighbors, local farms and community – all pieces we very much celebrate here at Grow Northwest.

Best to all during this time. Take care of yourselves and each other.  We appreciate your readership and support, and look forward to being there for you again.

For now, happy growing,

Becca, Editor

Grow Northwest
