The Organic Research Centre Bulletin contains reports on ORC's research and other activities, as well as information on research conducted elsewhere and perspectives on policy, organic standards and other issues. It is produced 3-4 times a year, distributed to ORC's subscribers, supporters and co-operating organisations.

I have been responsible for layout and content since 2013 and Editor since 2016.


The Organic Grower is the flagship publication of The Organic Growers Alliance.

It is published quarterly and brings together news from across the sector, technical articles, seasonal ramblings and updates from OGA members. Renowned organic grower Iain Tolhurst wrote that "The Organic Grower is probably the best magazine of its type in the English language".

I was founding editor of The Organic Grower with Tim Deane in 2007 and have been sole editor since 2011. Since Issue 8 in 2009 I have also been responsible for design and layout.
