No. We don’t sell or share your email information with anyone else.


If it’s free, how do you make your money?

Our revenue source is from our advertisers. Click on any of the ads and you’ll go to that gardening business’s website to see everything they have to offer. Check out more local gardening businesses in our Gardening Directory.


My email address changed. How do I change my subscription?

Just send your new email address to me at and I’ll make the change.


Why should I subscribe? Can’t I just read the articles on the web site?

When you subscribe, every week you will receive an email telling you that there is new content. Subscribing is the best way to make sure you don’t miss anything. And it’s free! If you prefer to just read the articles on the website, that’s great too!


I don’t live in Western New York.  May I subscribe?

Of course! We know that tourists, residents of neighboring counties and states, our friends in Canada and former Western New York residents are interested in gardening, too. Our magazine, like Western New York itself, is too wonderful to try to keep to ourselves. If you enjoy our magazine, you are welcome to subscribe.

  10. If anyone is interested in helping a elementary school garden, Highland Elementary school in Derby has a wish list of items posted on the “Friends of Highland Elementary ” Facebook page. I am donating 3 rain barrels for this school family project. This is a extension of a ongoing gardening project at the school that is very popular. The project is fully supported by volunteers and donations. So if you have a few free minutes to review the wishlist it would be greatly appreciated. As a avid gardener I always have extra supplies that I share with others in a effort to keep the world colorful and interesting while sustaining a natural environment. Any effort to inspire children to learn about gardening and develop a love of gardening is worth any support I am able to provide. Thanks for your time.

  11. Sylvia, it did go through. You received the welcome mail. You’ll receive the newest edition on Tuesday. Let me know if you have any problems. Thanks for subscribing!
