Harvests Magazine

Harvests is the official magazine of the Bio Dynamic Farming and Gardening Association and is published three times a year: Summer (released first week of December), Autumn/Winter (released first week of April) and Spring (released first week of August).


We welcome stories, features and images relating to biodynamic farming and gardening and affiliated subjects. It’s best that you send a query letter first (see below for contact details).  Submitting content implies that you understand and accept that your work may be edited, or held over until a later edition if there are space constraints.

Our editor assesses all contributions for suitability. If your story is not accepted for publication, we will inform you.

All Harvests contributors are acknowledged in the magazine but we regret that we cannot pay you for your work.

Copy deadline for the Autumn/Winter 2020 edition of Harvests is Friday 7 February 2020. Contact our editor, Rebecca Reider, with your queries: harvestseditorial@gmail.com


We welcome your advertisements in Harvests but given the special nature of this publication, we are selective about who we approach and accept. We  appreciate the support of all our advertisers and we encourage our members and other readers of Harvests to do the same.

By advertising in Harvests, you’ll reach people strongly committed to healthy, ethical and sustainable living, who make spending decisions accordingly. As the bulk of our readers are members of the Association, the magazine is read thoroughly and has a long shelf life.

Our rates are reasonable, with discounts available for block bookings. View our current rate sheet here: Harvests Mag Spec Sheet Oct 2018.

The advertising deadline for the Autumn/Winter 2020 edition of Harvests is Monday, 2 March 2020. Contact for advertising enquiries and to book your ad space or find out more: joanne@biodynamic.org.nz
