Cultivate your own garden

without comments

In Candide, Voltaire counseled us to cultivate our own garden. He meant that we had to pursue physical labor, but also that we must constantly seek out new experiences and information to keep ourselves mentally fit.

In an effort to help more people do that, our parent company, GIE Media, has just announced the release of its first-ever consumer app, A Garden Life.

AGL is the brainchild of our founder and chairman, Richard Foster. He spells out the mission like this:

To create a community of consumers with shared values and interests in lifestyle subject areas such as healthy living, that includes growing and preparing clean food, contributing to community, exploring travel and adventure, art and literature, as well as having a passion for diverse aspects of nature and gardening.

We’ll publish six issues of A Garden Life this year, exclusively via iOS and Android tablets and online.

If you like the idea but don’t have a tablet yet, you can read more at the AGL website. We’re on Twitter, too

You can get the premiere issue right now on iTunes and in the Android Market. Check it out, tell your friends and let us know what you think.

(And, if in addition to running a landscape business you also like to write about gardening, send a few pitches to AGL editor Heather Tunstall.)

New app available

without comments

Big news from GIE Media, our parent company, this month.

We’ve just launched a new GIE Media horticulture news app for iPhones and iPads that will channel breaking news, industry updates, great new feature stories, the latest products and the hottest videos from our market and all of the other ornamental and turf markets we serve into one place.

It’s the first of its kind in the industry, and a great way to stay on top of the tremendous amount of news we’re covering every day.

If you have a iPhone or iPad and you want to stay connected, download it now. Look for the Droid version soon.
