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.
(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.)
The flow of scholarship applications is starting to increase here at the Lawn & Landscape world headquarters.
This is a reminder to let the horticulture and landscape students in your life know that they can net five large if they win.
Download the application here.
Also: Design students have the best handwriting.
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.

Love to see stuff like this. Thanks, Chad!
You can read our February issue on screen here.
You can download the entry form here.
For this year’s list, we’ve added a new section on brand preference, to learn more about what specific equipment and products the biggest companies are using.
And remember, this is a list of the 100 biggest companies by revenue. So remember to put your 2011 numbers on there.
Thanks for your help, and good luck!
