Back in May, I did something I’ve wanted to do for years – I finally got all the supplies I needed to plant my own herb garden. But I failed to prune early on and my herbs grew tall with stubborn woody stems instead of the lush, bushy, horizontal-spreading leaves I’d hoped for. Something similar happened to Clean Eating. Along with the loss of our founder, Robert “Bob” Kennedy in 2012, the company had skipped a few “prunings” in the process of expansion and closed its doors in early June. In late August, we got word that the publisher of prolific titles like Vegetarian Times and Yoga Journal, Active Interest Media (AIM), had swooped in and acquired the fallen titles. We couldn’t be more thrilled. We’re back and better than ever, and you’re in the best possible hands. Something tells me that like my next batch of herbs, Clean Eating will outgrow its container – all it needs is a little know-how, a lot of love and plenty of diligent pruning.
