A local bimonthly magazine is getting close to reaching its fundraising goal in order to publish more often.
Grow Northwest is a free magazine serving Whatcom, Skagit, San Juan, Snohomish and Island counties, focusing on local agricultural and gardening news and features. It was founded in May 2010 by Becca and Brent Cole.
The company plans to change to a monthly publication in March if it can raise $10,000 by March 9 from local pledges. As of Tuesday morning, Feb. 28, the company had about $7,300 in pledges at kickstarter.com.
If the funding goal is reached, the publication will have enough funds to print and circulate three editions, allowing it time to increase advertising sales to a self-sustaining level, according to a release to potential donors.
