Locally owned and operated, Grow Northwest Magazine began publishing in May 2010 and currently publishes each month. The magazine highlights the diverse offerings of farmers and food producers, as well as DIY projects, simpler living, cooking and recipes, travel adventures, gardening, crafts, events, and profiles of organizations and artisans — all with a local angle.
“The Northwest has so much to offer in terms of food production, sustainable living and the DIY ethic. There is real passion here for supporting the local economy and those who grow, make, produce and create,” she said. “The magazine isl be a go-to guide for those people who enjoy these things and live by them.”
The magazine covers Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish, Island and San Juan counties.
Grow Northwest Magazine is locally owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Becca Schwarz Cole and Brent Cole, who live in eastern Whatcom County with their three young children, two dogs, two cats and chickens. The Coles also publish What’s Up! Magazine, a local music publication, and formerly owned and operated the Foothills Gazette, which they started in 2005.
