The Canadian Organic Grower (TCOG) is a national magazine covering organic production, research, marketing and more. The magazine has been around for 37 years, published three times a year, reaching farmers, gardeners and consumers all across Canada.

Reading TCOG will help you to:

  • Learn how to grow, sell and prepare organic food.
  • Discover innovative techniques used by organic farmers and gardeners.
  • Stay current on social, economic and regulatory issues regarding organic production.
  • Connect with the organic community across Canada.

We now offer annual subscriptions and a single-issue purchase option for both the print magazine and the digital edition, which you can find here. You can also find TCOG magazine on select newsstands across Canada! Find a list of retailers here.

Here on the TCOG website, we publish a selection of the print articles along with web-exclusive items and gems from our archives.

If you’re interested in growing or consuming organic, sustainably produced food, then you’ll enjoy this magazine! Our aim is to provide practical, timely information useful to growers and eaters across Canada.

Much of our content comes from contributions of dedicated volunteers; we are always looking for people willing to help write, share story ideas and photos and help us develop this valuable resource. Learn more about our submission guidelines here.
