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.)
