The new MOTHER EARTH NEWS app acts as a virtual library of our electronic resources, conveniently bringing them all together in one handy tool. After you download the app, you can browse through our resources and download those that most interest you. Our How to Can and Food Garden Guide tools, previously available only as separate apps, are offered for free within the MOTHER EARTH NEWS app, and together will guide you through growing a great organic garden and preserving your fresh harvests. New resources will appear within the app as they become available.
