Our goal is to publish Earth Collective Magazine 4 times each year to follow the seasons.  The magazine is available to read online for free but it costs $5100 (+GST) to print and distribute 5000 copies throughout the district.
The first issue was distributed but the second issue is printed in limited quantity and available for $5 from our website shop here, where we also sell a beautiful 2019 Upper CLutha Calendar, bamboo toothbrushes and indoor air purifing plants.
We are applying for grants to resume free distribution as we believe reaching all letterboxes makes a difference. If you think it is good, you may want to support Earth Collective financially and we can acknowledge your sponsorship in the magazine.
Earth Collective is a social enterprise. Thus far, all the work has been done voluntarily.
