Hello faithful readers and welcome to our 10th anniversary issue of Pip! This is a big moment for myself, the team and for all of you who have supported Pip along the way.

When I started Pip 10 years ago, people told me I was crazy to be starting up a print magazine but I just felt it was something I had to do. I had a vision and I wanted to bring it into the world.

At the time a lot of the gardening and sustainability magazines were a bit daggy and I wanted to create a publication that explored important topics like growing food, living sustainably, reducing waste, eating well, nurturing ourselves and each other, creating community and celebrating awesome people doing great things in their community. But I wanted it to be attractive and appealing to a wider audience. I didn’t want to just be preaching to the converted, I wanted to share these ideas with everyone, not just the die-hards.
