Life Media is an independently-owned, environmentally-conscious
book and magazine publishing company, launched in 1976 and
still owned and operated by the founding family. Our goal is to
provide editorially independent, quality products, and a high
level of service and integrity, in a way that minimizes our
ecological footprint and respects all the inhabitants of Mother
Our paid subscription digital magazines –
Natural Life, Life Learning, and
print and electronic books published under The Alternate
Press imprint, as well as a variety of websites, provide readers
with straightforward, trustworthy facts, analysis, opinions, and
how-to information about green living; pregnancy, birth, and natural parenting; and homeschooling / unschooling.
We are sometimes controversial, always honest, and forever
practical. As one of the original progressive North American sources of
information about natural family living and homeschooling, life learning,
and unschooling, we work hard to provide
a fresh perspective on these important topics. As a result,
you'll find us always a bit ahead of the pack.
