New editor at Organic NZ

New Zealand's leading magazine on organics and sustainable living, Organic NZ, has a new editor.

Adelia Hallett joins the magazine this month and begins by producing the September/October issue.

Organic NZ is published by the Soil and Health Association, an organisation established in 1941 to promote sustainable agriculture and nutrition. Co-chair Steffan Browning said that Ms Hallett was a good fit for the magazine.

"Adelia has a strong background in journalism and the organics sector, and we are delighted to welcome her as editor of Organic NZ," he said.

"New Zealand is at a critical point, where it must choose its path for the future. We believe that New Zealand can be organic by 2020, but can only be achieved through public pressure.

"Organic NZ has a huge role to play in helping people to understand the vital link between healthy soil, healthy food and healthy people."

Ms Hallett has worked in newspapers around New Zealand, including the New Zealand Herald, and is now freelancing and specialising in environmental reporting. She lives with her family on a smallholding on the Kaipara Harbour and is involved in local organic organisations.

Mr Browning paid tribute to the work of previous editor Allan Baddock in building Organic NZ into the country's leading magazine on organics and sustainable living.

"Organic NZ has a huge reputation for its credibility and authority, and we thank Allan for his role in developing that," he said.
