Connect with our authorsSince the beginning, we’ve aimed to be a bridge between you and our authors and their books. With our website redesign, it’s now even easier to find information on your favorite authors and find out when they will be in your area. Using our events tab, you can filter search results to find events by date, author, location, and category. If you have a specific author in mind, head to their page for a complete list of their upcoming events. Find yourself on a book page? We’ve made it so you can access author information from most anywhere. Scroll down and select the “About the Author” tab and you’ll find a bio as well as ways to connect with the author via social media and more.
Dig into our contentMore than just a venue for buying books, our website is a place for you to learn about the topics and ideas that our authors champion. Dig into our blog to find the latest news and opinions from Chelsea Green as well as tips and techniques about how you can bring our books to life in your backyard, kitchen, or community. Scroll down on any book page to explore related content such as videos, reviews, articles, and suggestions for additional books you might like. Our multimedia section offers up a venue for diving specifically into video content including how-to demonstrations, workshops, and author interviews. Of course, the main attraction at Chelsea Green Publishing is our books. We’ve added several new features to let you view our book lists exactly the way you want to. Filter by format (hardcover, paperback, or eBook) or sort through a list by price, pub. date, or alphabetically. Whether it’s scrolling over a book cover in “gallery” view and getting a pop-up summary or viewing all available formats on one book page, you’ll easily discover what you need to know, and quickly, no matter where you are on the site.
Get the latest information on sales and special offersOver the years we’ve published hundreds of books, many of them still in print and teaching a new generation. To find the most recent special offers on featured and bestselling books, visit our new special offers tab. Looking to have sale information delivered right to your inbox? We’ve made it simple to sign up for our email newsletter (and get 25% off your next purchase when you do!). Just look for the link in the top, right-hand corner of every page. If you’re already on the list, be sure to tell your friends.
Answer your questionsWe’ve made it easier than ever to find the answers to your questions by creating a robust search engine that gives you the newest, most relevant information at the click of a button. Our new search function allows you to search specifically by author, title, events, and more. If you’re not looking for a specific book or author but have a topic in mind, plug it into the search bar and you’ll find everything you could possibly want access to on that topic. For example, search “cider” and you’ll be presented with any and all related books, authors, blog posts, videos, events, and even book excerpts.

Meet the CGP teamLast but certainly not least, meet the diverse, sustainably minded employee owners who make up our Chelsea Green Publishing team! In 2012, Chelsea Green became an employee-owned company, creating an ESOP in which employees control 78 percent of the company’s privately held stock (the remaining stock is held by the founders, Margo and Ian Baldwin). This move was made to, in part, practice what we publish. It means that we all are uniquely invested in the success of our company and firmly dedicated to the Chelsea Green mission. Visit the staff directory page to meet these employee owners and read how, in their own words, each staff person views our company mission.
