The May/June 2015 issue includes an article on CNG's new marketing program for farmers, Stand Out in Your Field. 

The March/April 2014 issue include an article by CNG's Executive Director entitled "When organic laws do not include PGS - A cautionary tale". It addresses the "Only Organic" campaign and how it demonstrates that certain policy decisions can hurt the growth of the organic movement. 

The July/August 2013 issue announces a video with highlights from the Forum in Bangkok, produced by IFOAM, featuring Andre Leu, IFOAM World Board president (who gave an excellent, spirited presentation on PGS), and the PGS Committee members, including Alice Varon, CNG's Executive Director. The issue also announces two PGS that received official IFOAM recognition, Nature et Progres in France, considered the first PGS ever documented, and Bio Caledonia, a newer initiative operating in the small territory of New Caledonia.
