Organic NZ magazine has a proud history as the leading source of information on organics and sustainable living in Aotearoa

We’ve published a journal or magazine in some form since 1942. Originally published under the title ‘Compost Magazine’, it was retitled Soil & Health in 1965 and then Organic NZ in 2001.

Organic NZ is published six times a year and includes information on organic gardening, farming and growing; health, food and additives; pesticide reports, genetic engineering, animal health, international issues, new products, profiles, and recipes.
