When I first laid eyes on an issue of GreenPrints Magazine, I was in awe. After years of reading gardening media, I had never come across anything so heartfelt, so moving, so raw, and so real.
And when I started delving into all the content and connecting with the audience, I realized that GreenPrints is a special community, bonded together by a love of gardening and storytelling. And when you read our stories, you’ll benefit, too:
- You’ll have fun. Reading GreenPrints stories takes you away from the daily drudgery—and gives you a great sense of fun and adventure!
- You’ll smile and laugh. Whether it’s a cheery chuckle or a full-belly laugh, you’re certain to find funny content in GreenPrints stories.

- You’ll feel better. Now more than ever, you need the salve for the soul that GreenPrints delivers as restorative mental therapy.
And the icing on the cake is all the delightful and entertaining artwork that comes with GreenPrints—all original drawings and artwork, especially commissioned for each story. Every time I look at one of the pieces of artwork, I realize it’s just pure, plain fun!
In creating and publishing GreenPrints, my colleagues and I bring decades of gardening and storytelling experience to the table. All of us are passionate about gardening—and we all love a good story.
Founding Editor Pat Stone started GreenPrints more than 32 years ago, and his vision for a funny, entertaining, and inspirational publication lives on. Pat’s unique storytelling and keen eye for great content is remarkable, and we continue to get his help putting together every single issue.
Managing Editor Kate Bruzzi is a skilled creative director and project manager, working closely with our artists to produce beautiful art for each issue. Kate brings a love of gardening and storytelling—plus a ton of experience as mom to her daughter Willow—to her role with GreenPrints.
Daily Editor Amanda MacArthur manages a large food, herb, and edible flower garden at her home in western Massachusetts. As a best-selling cookbook author and mom to daughter Ruby, Amanda loves to spend her summers creating multi-sensory flower gardens that are both beautiful and delicious. She is deeply engaged with the gardening community and hand-picks her favorite GreenPrints stories to share with you every day.
Finally, I have a lifetime interest in gardening, storytelling, and writing. My schoolteacher father tended a vast food and flower garden at home, teaching me and my seven siblings how to garden. And my mother was an award-winning essayist and writer of poems and stories. Gardening and storytelling have been a family affair my entire life!
If you want to join all the fun at GreenPrints, check out everything we have to offer, and I’m sure you’ll be as pleasantly surprised as I was when I read my first issue of the magazine.
Yours for fun with gardening stories,
Editor & Publisher
