New editor at Organic NZ
New Zealand's leading organics and sustainable living magazine, Organic NZ, has just appointed Philippa Jamieson as editor, starting with the next issue, out in the news stands late October. Ms Jamieson, a freelance writer and editor, has contributed to Organic NZ for several years.
Her book The Wild Green Yonder: Ten Seasons Volunteering on New Zealand's Organic Farms, was published last year, and this year she volunteered on six organic farms in Europe. "More and more people are farming and growing organically, eating organic food and using organic products in homes and businesses," said Ms Jamieson.
"Organic NZ offers information and inspiration for people wanting to live healthy, sustainable lifestyles, as well as practical tips for farmers and home gardeners." The magazine is published by the not-for-profit Soil & Health Association of New Zealand, the world's oldest organisation dedicated to organic production, founded in 1941. Philippa Jamieson, a long-time member of Soil & Health, sat on the association's national council from 2006-2008, taking on the role of co-chair in 2007.
"Philippa brings a wealth of experience to the editor role, and an understanding of Soil & Health's philosophy and aims," said Steffan Browning, Soil & Health co-chair and spokesman. "Organic NZ is the flagship of our association, carrying news of our campaigns and articulating our commitment to genuine sustainability and our vision of an Organic 2020." "For New Zealand to live up to our clean, green reputation, we must clean up our act," Ms Jamieson said. "Organic NZ is reporting on the positive changes going on around the country, and is an expression of Soil & Health's motto of healthy soil, healthy food, healthy people."
