Changes Start with... THE SPARK "at the heart of the alternative west country"

Free ads

We're sorry but we don't do free adverts.


As a small local independent magazine the only way we pay for ourselves is through ad sales.


For twenty years we've been supporting small scale independent green and ethical businesses, practitioners and organisations. Our ad prices are not inflated to make huge profits or allow for crazy discounts - we work on a break-even basis - any money we make pays for our wages, distribution and goes back into the business. And we aim to treat every advertiser fairly, whether they are experienced hagglers or new to advertising.


If you're looking for a mention in our Online Events Calendar (, its only 90p a word to advertise there - our website has had more than 2 million hits in the last year so its a great place to post your course, workshop or event. If you buy an event ad in the magazine it will go online for free or if you've missed the mag deadline we also take online-only event ads - more info here:


We offer VAT-free advertising for charities and run time-limited special offers from time-to-time; subscribe to The Sparkler, our monthly (or so) e-newsletter, which always includes advertising info and details of special offers when they are running.


As we've supported the green and ethical southwest since 1993, we hope you will support us, and buy an advert.
